Maximum flight velocity of blood drops in analysing blood traces.
Summary of "Maximum flight velocity of blood drops in analysing blood traces."
When analysing blood spatters, traces often occur which regarding the collision angle, cannot be allocated to any supposed centre of origin. Drops following highly curved (ballistic) trajectories usually form these types of traces. The reconstruction of such trajectories requires knowledge of the mass, the diameter (of which approximations are known) and the velocity of the blood drops. This article provides an upper range of the velocity in relation to the diameter of the blood drops based on physical laws. This is very helpful in analysing ballistic trajectories.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Ultrasonography applying the Doppler effect, with frequency-shifted ultrasound reflections produced by moving targets (usually red blood cells) in the bloodstream along the ultrasound axis in direct proportion to the velocity of movement of the targets, to determine both direction and velocity of blood flow. (Stedman, 25th ed)
Fractional Flow Reserve, Myocardial
The ratio of maximum blood flow to the MYOCARDIUM with CORONARY STENOSIS present, to the maximum equivalent blood flow without stenosis. The measurement is commonly used to verify borderline stenosis of CORONARY ARTERIES.
Measurement of intracardiac blood flow using an M-mode and/or two-dimensional (2-D) echocardiogram while simultaneously recording the spectrum of the audible Doppler signal (e.g., velocity, direction, amplitude, intensity, timing) reflected from the moving column of red blood cells.
Blood Circulation Time
Determination of the shortest time interval between the injection of a substance in the vein and its arrival at some distant site in sufficient concentration to produce a recognizable end result. It represents approximately the inverse of the average velocity of blood flow between two points.
The degree to which the blood supply for BLOOD TRANSFUSIONS is free of harmful substances or infectious agents, and properly typed and crossmatched (BLOOD GROUPING AND CROSSMATCHING) to insure serological compatibility between BLOOD DONORS and recipients.
