IEC 61685 pdf download Ultrasonics – Flow measurement systems – Flow test object
This International Standard specifies parameters for a flow Doppler test object representinga blood vessel of known diameter at a certain depth in human tissue, carrying a steady flow.
This International Standard establishes a flow Doppler test object which can be used toassess various aspects of the performance of Doppler diagnostic equipment.
The following normative documents contain provisions which,through reference in this text,constitute provisions of this International Standard.

For the purposes of this International Standard, the following definitions apply:
-3 dB Doppler frequency
frequency at which the power per unit frequency in the Doppler spectrum is half (-3 dB) of themaximum value
-3 dB sample volume
volume of a region in space for which the Doppler system gives a response to a point Dopplertarget that is above -3 dB from the maximal response, taking account of the effects of bothtransmission and reception
Unit: cubic millimetre, mm3
-3 dB sample volume length
largest dimension of the -3 dB sample volume in the direction of the beam alignment axis(see 3.5 of lEC61102)
Unit: millimetre, mm
-3 dB sample volume width
largest value of the dimension of the -3 dB sample volume along an axis which isperpendicular to the beam alignment axis. In case the Doppler system has a scan plane, theaxes are taken in the scan plane and perpendicular to the scan plane
Unit: millimetre, mm
frequency of an acoustic signal based on the output observed by a hydrophone placed in anacoustic field: it is the arithmetic mean of the two frequencies at which the amplitude of theacoustic pressure spectrum is 3 dB below the peak amplitude
[conforms to 3.4.2 of lEC 61102]
false indication of signal frequency as a result of sampling at too low a frequencyNOTE The threshold for aliasing depends on pulse repetition frequency and a possible base line shift.
average frequency of the Doppler spectrum
parameter estimated by clinical Doppler systems for the short-time average in a Dopplerspectrum, ignoring the contributions from noise
NOTE The average frequency of the Doppler spectrum is generally determined for a small time interval,typically 2 ms to 20 ms).
axial response range
depth range in tissue over which a signal from a specific target plus noise is at least 3 dBabove the noise level
