Peripheral Arterial Ultrasound

A Doppler ultrasound is a noninvasive diagnostic imaging test that uses sound waves to evaluate blood flow through the major vessels. There are many benefits to Doppler ultrasound: It is the only type of ultrasound capable of evaluating blood vessels; it does not utilize any ionizing radiation; and it can easily be performed in a doctor’s office. In the hands of a skilled practitioner, a Doppler ultrasound provides extremely accurate results, although it is occasionally possible for a bone to block part of an image. A Doppler ultrasound procedure is considered risk-free.
