We collect all data... The original purpose is to determine the etiology of hypertension and/or abnormal lab values. You will not have the entire picture with a partial study.

We still collect all the data.  Even if you find RAS, if the kidney is
atrophied with little to no flow, why put in a stent?  If the kidney is
still large and has good flow, a stent will help.

After a conversation that I had today with a general ultrasound
technologist I have a question.  Does anybody here who does renal artery
Doppler studies consider the study for that kidney completed and stop
upon determining that the renal/aortic ratio is > 3.5, or, do you
continue and try to get all of the additional data and views that are
generally obtained in a complete renal artery study?  Thank you for any
response.
