An example of such an artefact is the lines that can be seen in the lumen of the trachea. 4 Artefact: The top picture shows ultrasound waves being reflected at the outer surface of an organ and reflected again at the inner surface of the opposite side. The lower picture shows a similar refection from two surfaces but this time some of the reflected waves from the second surface are reflected back off the inner face of the first surface. They are then reflected back off the second surface for a second time.

An incident angle of 30–60° to the vessel lumen gives the best angle to estimate the velocity. The Doppler beam steer alters the angle of the Doppler beam. The angle correction adjusts the cursor line to be parallel to the vessel wall so that the device uses the correct angle to calculate the velocity of blood flow. The assessment of blood flow is complicated by the fact that flow is not usually laminar. It may be parabolic with the maximum flow along the central axis and zero flow at the vessel wall, or almost laminar, as in large vessels such as the aorta, when flow is laminar except at the very edge and in diseased vessels flow may in fact be turbulent.
