Hey Marsha.. is your abdominal duplex book published yet?  I have been trying to access it through a medical bookstore here in Houston that carries a lot of vascular technology books and can't seem to find it.  Does amazon .com have it?

Thanks, Michael.  It was great to finally meet you, too. As always, we really enjoyed New Zealand and can hardly wait for a return visit!
The RAR can be used if the aortic peak systolic velocity is > 40 cm/sec, but < 100 cm/sec.  If outside this range, you may under or overcall the % stenosis in the renal artery.  Consider a renal velocity of 140 cm/sec and an aortic velocity of 120 cm/sec.  With an aortic velocity of 30 cm/sec, the RAR would be 4.6. Consider a renal artery velocity of 190 cm/sec . With an aortic velocity of 130, the RAR would be 1.5.
Hope that this clarifies.
