This is an ultrasound exam of the arteries in the arms or legs that can help evaluate whether there are blockages caused by plaque in the arteries.
A Doppler ultrasound may help diagnose many conditions, including:
During a Doppler ultrasound, an ultrasound tech presses a transducer against the skin over the area of the body being examined, moving from one area to another as necessary.
This test may be done as an alternative to more-invasive procedures, such as angiography.
This procedure involves no downtime or recovery.
By participating in this quiz, or screening or health assessment, I recognize and accept all risks associated with it. I understand that the program will only screen for certain risk factors and does not constitute a complete physical exam. For the diagnosis of a medical problem, I must see a physician for a complete medical exam. I release Deborah Heart and Lung Center and any other organization(s) involved in this screening, and their employees and agents, from all liabilities, medical claims or expenses which may arise from my participation. Thank you for investing in your health by participating today.
