Abstract

Learning the principles and application of Doppler ultrasound is difficult and requires repeated practice. Flow phantoms provide a method of teaching Doppler techniques before their application in clinical patients; however, commercially available flow phantoms are expensive. Herein we describe an easily constructed, economic Doppler flow phantom, utilizing readily available products, for use as a training aid.
