It is interesting watching this discussion that no one has mentioned
that all the published studies we have as our guideposts are based on
single discrete bits of information (PSV-EDV from ultrasound and/or
percent stenosis from a single view angio). My experience is similar to
Bonnie where multiple readers, time constraints, and the reality of
somehow taping over a study (how does it seem to happen with the only
one you've wanted to revisit in a year!) makes hard copy and careful
attention to detail on the (I'll be really PC here)ultrasound persons
part the only way to fly.
I once had a Doc say "Don't show me anything I have to think about.", at
the time I thought he was an arrogant jerk but have come around to
understand that we work together and if I am not giving him/her good
information I need to change.
