A new ultrasonic technique for arterial visualization has been developed in our laboratory. The method produces images of arteries which are comparable with those obtained by roentgenographic means. Thus far, we have visualized the carotid arteries, arch of the aorta, abdominal aorta, iliac artery, and the femoral and popliteal vessels. The method has some advantages over x-ray angiography in that it is completely free of risk and discomfort, is cheaper, and provides views that are unobtainable by any other means.
