Doppler Duplex Ultrasound
An effective, non-invasive way to “see” blood vessels and identify vein problems
To properly treat many vein issues, we must first have an accurate diagnosis. We may use diagnostic tools – including Doppler Duplex Ultrasound imaging – so we can determine the extent of your vein problems. Doppler Duplex Ultrasound imaging allows us to obtain pictures of deep and superficial veins.
Ultrasound technology is non-invasive and uses high frequency sound waves to produce an image on a screen. Doppler Duplex Ultrasound combines conventional imaging information and Doppler flow information to help our surgeons determine your vein-related issues.
- The conventional ultrasound shows the structure of your blood vessels.
- The Doppler ultrasound shows the movement of your red blood cells through the vessels.
Duplex ultrasound produces images can be color coded to show our surgeons where your blood flow is severely blocked as well as the speed and direction of blood flow.
