Carotid Doppler Ultrasound

A carotid ultrasound is a non-invasive procedure used to determine how well blood is flowing through the carotid arteries.


A stroke can occur when blood flow to the brain is compromised.

 An ultrasound of the carotid arteries can identify and quantify plaque causing narrowing in the carotid arteries.

This information helps physicians understand a patient's risk or identify the cause of a stroke. It also allows physicians to suggest treatments for the prevention of new strokes.
