The purpose of this prospective, angiographically controlled study was to determine the diagnostic value of color Doppler sonography with two differing approaches of scanning in patients with clinical clues for renal artery stenosis (RAS). In 135 hypertensive patients peak systolic velocity in the main renal arteries and the resistive index (RI) of the intrarenal arteries were measured. The RI side-to-side-difference (delta RI) greater than 0.05 or peak systolic velocity greater than 2 m/s were… CONTINUE READING
