Use of colour Doppler imaging in ocular blood flow research

Acta Ophthalmol. 2011 Dec;89(8):e609-30. doi: 10.1111/j.1755-3768.2011.02178.x. Epub 2011 Oct 11.


The main objective of this report is to encourage consistent quality of testing and reporting within and between centres that use colour Doppler imaging (CDI) for assessment of retrobulbar blood flow. The intention of this review is to standardize methods in CDI assessment that are used widely, but not to exclude other approaches or additional tests that individual laboratories may choose or continue to use.
