Carotid Doppler Study – A carotid doppler study is a test that uses sound waves to create pictures of the blood flow in the two large arteries in your neck which are called the carotid arteries. You have one carotid artery on each side of your neck which supply your brain with blood

Venous Doppler Study – Venous Doppler study is an ultrasound that uses sound waves to create a picture of your blood flow. The most common use of this test is to search for blood clots. It’s also commonly used for people with varicose veins.

Arterial Doppler Study shows blocked or reduced blood flow through the major arteries of your arms and legs. Your doctor may order this test if you have:

  • Numbness and tingling sensations in your hands, arms, feet and legs
  • A feeling of fatigue and heaviness in your arms and legs
  • Your doctor thinks you may have a condition known as thoracic outlet syndrome

The Arterial Doppler ultrasound uses sound waves to produce images of the blood flow from your heart to the upper extremities (arms) and lower extremities (legs), which can be seen on a computer screen.
