What is an arterial ultrasound?
More commonly known as an arterial duplex scan or doppler ultrasound. This noninvasive test allows doctors to visualize blood flow through major arteries in the arm and legs. This test can reveal whether you have any reduced blood flow and/or clots in your major arteries. An arterial ultrasound uses the same technology that allows physicians to see an unborn baby inside a pregnant mother.
How do I prepare?
This is a simple and noninvasive test that takes about 30 to 45 minutes long. It generally will not include any complications or require any recovery time. As soon as the ultrasound is done, you can return to your normal activities.
