Conclusion: The algorithm can be implemented in most clinical ultrasound machines with minor additions to the PW Doppler processing algorithm. The algorithm is optimized to be robust for a variety of blood flow velocities and is shown to perform well when the signal from the blood is on par in amplitude with the catheter signal. Significance: Unambiguous and distinct visualization of catheter tip facilitates real-time tracking of the catheter and aids minimally invasive procedures.
