I have found if you have sector capability, and do the heel toe from the
posterior neck, you can often get the angle.

Please explain how to get a 60 degree angle on a vessel that is diving
straight down, i.e.: distal ICA.

I find that it is rare with the new ultrsound equipment that a 60 degree
angle is not obtainable.  You can do the "heel toe" motion, swing the
Doppler box, all that stuff, so its almost always do-able. Also changing
from linear to sector image can help with tortuous distal ICA's etc.

I work in a small city with a new ultrasound program at the university.
There is also a new vascular ultrasound program with students rotating
through my lab.  I am finding these students are being taught that the
angle of insonation should be 60 degrees and nothing else no matter how
the vessel is coursing. My students are telling me that he other
surgeons' lab and the general US depts. in the 2 hospitals also
incorporate this same school of thought.  For me, it has always been 60
degrees or less. Is this common practice in other communities? I would
appreciate your feedback.
