CAROTID ARTERY ULTRASOUND

What is a Carotid Artery Ultrasound?

 

A carotid artery ultrasound (also called a carotid artery duplex) is an ultrasound-based diagnostic imaging technique to reveal structural details of the carotid arteries, so as to look for blood clots, atherosclerotic plaque buildup (carotid artery disease), and other blood flow problems.
