Arterial and Venous Doppler

An Arterial and Venous Doppler works to measure and record blood flow through the use of sound waves and a transducer. Your doctor may use an Arterial and Venous Doppler Procedure to evaluate and identify any:

  • Blockages
  • Clots
  • Narrowing of The Vessels
  • Vein Abnormalities
  • Tumors
  • Blood Flow Problems (that may indicate Peripheral Artery Disease) This procedure will not only confirm or rule out arterial blockage, but it will also allow the doctor to identify where the blockages are and how bad they are.
