ABSTRACT
An ultrasonic How detector hap been used for the study of the arterial circulation in health and in arterial diseases. A pulsating flow ran be detected as far as the distal digital arteries, as an audible sound or, it can be recorded as a waveform tracing. When the arterial circulation is reduced in the extremities, the arterial flow can be detected either as a recording tracing or as an audible sound if the circulation is extremely reduced. We recommend the extensive use of this diagnostic method because of its simplicity, safety and accuracy for the clinical evaluation of peripheral arterial circulation of the head-neck and extremities.
