      Dear Steve,

      Do you take AVF volume flow measurements for both inflow and outflow?
      I know some clinics they only take inflow VF.
      I find it quite challenging to get a good outflow VF measurement especially with those super tortuous fistula.
      Any tips? (With Toshiba machine, a bit different from other companies. Flow area instead of diameter)

      If I’m not mistaken, outflow VF shouldn’t be measuring more than inflow. Is that correct?

      Thank you Sara

      Hi Sara,

      Unfortunately I don’t scan AVF patients as they are all surveyed in the public hospital that does the renal transplants.

      It makes it a fairly niche area of ultrasound in Adelaide,

      I do however have some contacts that will be able to help us both learn together on this topic,

      Leave it with me for a tick and I will see what I can find out for you.

      Adult echoes and AVF ultrasounds are about the only things I don’t do regularly. I am blessed to have a wonderfully diverse case mix but it does not include these two examinations.

      Steve
