The glossary of “Auto Measure”

  • HR (bpm):Heart rate
  • PSV (cm/s):Peak systolic velocity
  • EDV (cm/s):End diastolic velocity
  • PI:Pulsatility index (of Gosling)
    • PI = (PSV–EDV)/MV
  • RI:Resistance index (of Pourcelot)
    • RI = (PSV–EDV)/PSV
  • VTI (cm):Velocity-time integral
  • TAV Max (cm/s):The maximum of time-averaged velocity
  • S/B:The average RI of a cycle
  • SD:Systolic/Diastolic Ratio
    • SD = PSV/EDV
  • ACCL (cm/s²):The acceleration index
    • ACCL = (V1 – V2)/ACCT
  • ACCT (s):The time from the lowest to the highest
  • VFM (ml/min):Volume flow per minute
