I just did a 5 year old for a renal artery duplex yesterday and our cardiologist read it.  It's very rare that we have pediatric patients.

Hi guys,
I am looking for some direction, thoughts, or out of the box ideas from the experts.

Our vascular surgeons liability does not allow them to read/treat anyone under 16yrs of age. We are getting multiple patients a month needing vascular testing and need to send them to another local hospital out of our network.  All of our vascular studies are read by Vascular surgeons currently and our Pediatric Radiology doctors do not feel comfortable reading vascular so we are left sinking in the water.

How does everyone else handle pediatric vascular studies?
