Is Doppler specific to one kind of application, like vascular, cardiac, or urology? Are there ultrasound machines that are ideally suited for cardiac Doppler, vascular Doppler, etc, or a machine having Doppler capability that can be applied to all kinds of applications?

Doppler is used in vascular applications to quantify the speed and direction of blood flow. Also, CW Doppler and Aux CW Doppler are important tools in cardiac applications.

Ultrasound systems can be vascular, OB, or cardiac. OB and vascular can be combined together in one unit. If the system handles the three applications, it is usually referred to as a shared system. Also, in the market you can find systems that are designed mainly for cardiac use, such as the Sequoia 256.
