Temporal Resolution -Poor tempRes equals poor image quality. determines frame rate, the time it takes to update all lines in image.
Ways to increase or make faster the Temperal Resolution: -Decrease depth (takes less time for farthest wave to return) -Narrow sector(fewer scan lines) -Lower Density ( fewer scan lines) -Single focal point -Parallel beam forming.
Note: M-mode is faster that 2D, 2D faster than 3D no answer, just a fact
Doppler Effect ( Frequency shift is directly proportional to..... Velocity
CW doppler -Continuous transmission -a Pair of PZ crystals -Range of velocities along entire beam No Distance Range Resolution = Range Ambiguity -Useful to detect max. velocities.
PW doppler -at a single fixed time and place after transmission -Displays velocities at a SPECIFIC distance. (sample volume) _Range gated -limit on maximum velocity, if exceed = aliasing
Nyquist Limit Maximum velocity.
Lower Frequency Tx's have a ---------------- Nquist limit. Higher
Shallow depth has a --------------Niquist limit. Higher
Tissue Doppler only detects: velocity components that are parallel to the beam in pulswave and color doppler display.
Higher Frequency Transducers (12) Better resolution, less depth penetration, more attenuation, lower Nyquist limit or lower max velocity limit with PW.

Main parameters for diastolic Ventricular function for Echo are -PW dop AV valve inflow. (mitral and tricuspid) -PW pulmonary vein flow -TR jet -PW tissu doppler (TDI AV annulus) -Color m-mode (speed of propagation) -Atrial size: reflects duration and severity -RV pressure estimates
MV E wave in regards to Ventricular diastolic function, the steeper the slope the ------------- shorter the deceleration time
Pulm Vein PW doppler for Ventricular dias.fx. wave flow shows above baseline S and D peak(systolic and diastolic) and Below baseline A wave Atrial contraction.(shows how much flow goes back up into pulm vein.
PW tissue doppler E/A prime wave below base line.diastole, but systolic flow shows Above the base line.
