This abstract validated a very simple and relatively inexpensive method of measuring access flow, the Transonics ultrasound dilution device see Krivitski et al with a very expensive method, namely cardiac-triggered 2D phase- contrast magnetic resonance angiography (MRA). The correlation of the two methods was 0.91, with a mean flow of 965 with ultrasound dilution and 1052 with MRA (the two measurements were not done quite simultaneously). (Daugirdas)
