Doppler sonography in renal artery stenosis. An evaluation of intrarenal and extrarenal imaging parameters.

A prospective comparison of different direct and indirect Doppler parameters with angiography was performed to determine the most useful Doppler parameters and threshold values for the detection of significant (> or =60%) renal artery stenosis (RAS). The best combination of parameters was found to be the use of direct parameters of peak systolic velocity… (More)
