Abstract: Transcranial Doppler ultrasound detection of weak embolic signals is inhibited by intrinsic limitations within the human auditory system. Psychoacoustics effects are likely to be exacerbated in a clinical environment, where automated embolus detection has potential to surpass manual detection. In this study we quantify the impact of clinical environment on manual detection of Doppler embolic signals following carotid surgery. We also discuss the implications of psychoacoustics considerations for the evaluation of automated detection systems.
