The pure and sharp acoustic signal indicates proper alignment. Prior localization of the stenotic flow using colour Doppler, wherein it is seen in the form of a mosaic, enables precise adjustment of the Doppler beam angle (Fig. 20). Failure to use the 2 MHz, Pedoff-type, continuous, stand-alone Doppler probe (pen-shaped probe) without 2D imaging (‘blind’) The great ease of manipulating of this probe allows for optimal alignment of the beam with the central jet of the stenosis. Poor alignment (above 20°) leads to a clear underestimation of the transvalvular VTI (Fig.
