I do not think the question was geared at the how too..mas much as it was of the why. You can achieve 60 degrees within most of the areas of the body with the new machineray and trickery :) However, just refer your students back to their phyics books and have them review the Doppler Equation/Shift, and really understand why there is an argument in the first place between a straight 60 or 60 or less.

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. > > ________________________________> > From: UVM Flownet on behalf of Kristy Peeler> Sent: Mon 1/26/2009 9:58 AM> To: [log in to unmask]> Subject: angles> > > > 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?
