Flow Symmetry Test
Msct scan, catheterization and sestamibi test results all show the blood flow in arteries. What are the main difference between these test results?
See below: Cath is the gold standard to which any procedure is compared to but is invasive. Msct is non invasive and evaluates the vessel specifically and can assess the degree of stenosis/blockage. Drawbacks include : 1)potentially higher dose of radiation but is significantly reduced at experienced centers2) overestimation of stenosis in inexp hands and artifact. Sestamibi only looks at blood flow. ...Read more

Ultrasound says that the brachial artery has normal triphasic flow but also indicates collateral distal flow. What is collateral distal flow? Bad?
Flow around blockage: Distal collateral arterial flow would imply that an arterial branch of the brachial artery such as the ulnar or radial artery is blocked or narrowed. When this happens, small branching arteries that can bridge the blocked segment enlarge to get some blood beyond the blockage. These collateral branches maintain viability and some function of the areas affected by the main blockage. ...Read more

The good news, is that a fetus's brain is very resilient, and as long as all else goes well from here on in, the baby can develop normally. ...Read more
