Fast Hartley transforms for spectral analysis of ultrasound Doppler signals. Academic Article uri icon


  • Spectral analysis of Doppler ultrasound has been known to yield valuable information to assess the state of circulation in the peripheral blood vessels. In the past, the raw Doppler data have been directly input into a dedicated spectrum analyzer or, more recently, transformed on a microcomputer with the fast Fourier technique. The fast Hartley technique is used to transform these data. The Hartley transform has the advantages of being a purely real-numbered transform, and therefore for real Doppler data, is not only more conceptually straightforward, but also requires less computer memory, is simpler to calculate, and is better suited to large-scale integration implementation. 1988 IEEE
