Almost any system for the detection of asymptomatic circulating emboli by Doppler ultrasound employs the fast Fourier Transform (FFT). However, the FFT is not ideally suited to study short-lived embolic signals. The wavelet transform (WT) is an optimized way of analyzing short-lived signals and performs better than the FFT in some respects. We propose a detection method based on the discrete wavelet transform (DWT) and study some parameters, which might be useful for describing embolic signals. We used 2 independent data sets, comprising 100 low intensity embolic signals, 100 various type of artifacts and 100 Doppler speckle. After applying the DWT to the data, several parameters were evaluated. The threshold values used for both data sets were optimized using the first data set. 98 out of 100 embolic signals were detected as embolic signals for the first data set. 95 out of 100 embolic signals were detected for the second data set when the same threshold values were used
