Bob Scisson: "It has been my experience that the majority believes volume flow
measurements are not worth the crusted remains of left over gel on a
rectal transducer. Was that an overtly strong statement?"
I find volume flow pretty handy with dialysis fistulas, especially in a case where there is steal and you occlude the fistula and record the increase in flow in the native artery distal to the fistula. I'm not sure if there's literature on this.

PS I hope to never have to experience that particular form of crusty gel remains. I thought it was bad enough to go into a room when there's gel left on any probe but you've blown that right out of the water. Gross.
