Gerry Hill

PositionLecturer
DepartmentDepartment of Surgical Sciences (Dunedin)
Research summaryClinical Manager, Otago Vascular Diagnostics (Vascular Laboratory)

Research

I am a lecturer in vascular science within the Department of Surgical Sciences, Dunedin School of Medicine and a vascular ultrasound specialist. I am at present working on two research proposals in relation to ultrasound measurement of Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms (AAA) and the optimal sampling of velocities measurements.
