Vascular Ultrasound

Vascular ultrasound, also called a duplex study, uses sound waves (ultrasound) and color imaging (Doppler technology) to create images of your blood vessels. The pictures can reveal clots, plaque buildup and other blockages or abnormalities in blood flow.

A technician passes a non-invasive transducer over your skin to examine one or more of the following:

  • Aorta (your body’s main artery)
  • Carotid (neck) arteries
  • Iliac arteries (branches of the aorta)
  • Leg or arm arteries and veins
  • Mesenteric (digestive system) arteries
  • Renal (kidney) arteries
