At present, the most important problem of the ultrasonic Doppler blood flow measurement is Doppler angle, i.e., the angle between the flow vector and the sound beam direction. A method is proposed which uses identification of two successive echos in the analysis. It is found that the method provides a secure basis for the measurement of the Doppler angle, since the accuracy of the measurement is high.
