Principles Model ES-100VX Minidop is designed to receive blood flow velocity information by ultrasound. A specific frequency is transmitted from the probe to the patient. Technically the transceiver amplifies a high frequency oscillation output for transmission to the transducer. The voltage is converted by a piezoelectric crystal (transducer) to ultrasound. The ultrasound beam is transmitted to blood cells flowing through arteries. The ultrasound beam is reflected by the red blood cells or by moving structures and received by the crystal in the transducer which converts the ultrasound into a voltage. A Doppler shift occurs between the emission and reception of the ultrasound beam. The voltage is amplified. The electronics amplifies the signal, filters out noise and improves the S/N ratio. The Doppler shift signals are amplified further and converted to audible sound via a speaker.
