A Doppler ultrasound test uses reflected sound waves to see how blood flows through a blood vessel. During pregnancy, a Doppler ultrasound is used to examine blood flow in an unborn baby (fetus) to check the fetus’s health.
Doppler studies are applied to suspected venous thrombosis, vascular diseases, as well as general vascular assessment.
Color Doppler uses standard ultrasound methods to produce a picture of a blood vessel. Also, a computer converts the Doppler sounds into colors that are overlaid on the blood vessel’s image and represent the speed and direction of blood flow through the vessel.
In order to undergo an investigation, please consult your physician, call us or walk-in to any of our facilities to seek further information on all the test available.
