Carotid and Vertebral Arteries Color Doppler
Ultrasound diagnostics or ultrasonography (US) is a radiological
imaging method which uses ultrasonic high-frequency waves to see the
inside structures of the body.
By doing the US and CD procedures, we do not use ionizing radiation.
By using doppler US we measure and analyze the blood flow in the blood vessels.
We assess the blood flow through the arteries in the neck and
potentially discover atherosclerotic changes of the blood vessels, hard
and soft plaques, as well as carotid stenosis.
Radiologist – a specialist in radiology educated for doing CD and for
interpreting it, will interpret the scan and will write a radiological
report. If necessary, the radiologist will discuss the report with the
physician that indicated the procedure.
