You shouldn't have a problem with angle; Use the "trapezoidal" setting
on your linear probe to give you a sector-shaped image; you see more on
the sides and the color is better. The angle is self-correcting "Smart
Doppler" within limits. Just set the angle cursor parallel to the
vessel/flow and the machine will select the element for Doppler that
gives you a 60 degree angle. This does not work if the vessel is diving;
watch the angle read-out and you will see when it goes below 60 degrees.
Then, it is usually better to go to "line adjustment" and you can dial
in the correct angle, 0-60. When you get used to it, you will like it. 
The calc package is quite complex and requires a lot of "clicking" to
get your info in. Do you have a manual?  NormaV

Subject: HP 5500 application

Does anyone know anything about the set up for carotid studies on the HP

5500?  The doctor bought this machine refurbished for vascular studies
to use 
2 times a month and doesn't want to pay to have an application
specialist 
come out.  I am having an awful time with the angle adjustment and calc 
package. If anyone could help I would greatly appreciate it!
