i would think an RI is a consitant measure, divides two numbers. Therefore, i would think a 0.8-1.0 would indicate failure. The splenic is an organ that likes blood and is typically not resistant. therfore, resistant flow and a 0.8-1.0 would indicate failure.

What was the patient history? Trauma? Portal hypertension?

Can someone tell me if there is a normal RI for splenic artery?   Is there an article to reference?  One of my students on clinical said one of the docs said the splenic artery RI appeared high in one of the patients and asked the student to research this.  Does age matter? HTN hx matter? Does body size play a role?

 

Thank You for any information.
