Abstract

Background: We wanted to evaluate prospectively the feasibility of sonographic and Doppler assessment of the inferior mesenteric artery (IMA) and to provide data on its normal morphological and hemodynamic characteristics. Methods: Sonography and Doppler study of the IMA were performed on 116 patients without splanchnic vessel pathology. Vessel diameter, systolic, diastolic, and time-averaged mean flow velocities, pulsatility index values, and flow volumes were correlated with patient age (
