Abstract [en]

High-resolution spectral Doppler is an important and powerful noninvasive tool for estimation of velocities in blood vessels using medical ultrasound scanners. Such estimates are typically formed using an averaged periodogram technique, resulting in well-known limitations in the resulting spectral resolution. Recently, we have proposed techniques to instead form high-resolution data-adaptive estimates exploiting measurements along both depth and emission. The resulting estimates gives noticeably superior velocity estimates as compared to the standard technique, but suffers from a high computational complexity, making it interesting to formulate computationally efficient implementations of the estimators. In this work, by exploiting the rich structure of the iterative adaptive approach (IAA) based estimator, we examine how these estimates can be efficiently implemented in a time-recursive manner using both exact and approximate formulations of the method. The resulting algorithms are shown to reduce the necessary computational load with several orders of magnitude without noticeable loss of performance.
