An excellent imaging tool for examining blood flow in arteries and veins
A color doppler ultrasound or triplex scan is used to evaluate the structure or architecture of a vessel, visualize blood and measure blood flow through the arteries and veins. It can evaluate the amount of vascular stenosis (narrowing) or occlusion (complete blockage) within an artery and provide important information that guide therapeutic decisions. It also assists in ruling out aneurysms and it is the main aid to rule out thrombotic events.
Please remember to bring any previous ultrasound to your appointment.
