Extremity Arterial Doppler
Arterial Doppler is an examination which is required when circulatory disorders are suspected, particularly in the lower extremities. With the Arterial Doppler examination the speed of blood flow and amount of blood in the blood vessels can be ascertained. Furthermore, with this examination, whether or not there is plaque on the blood vessel walls and whether or not this congestion is critical can be investigated. It is a basic tool in diseases concerning the arteries. Detailed investigations can now be carried out using angiography. Angiographic examinations can be carried out using magnetic resonance imaging techniques in the same way they could be carried out using direct x-rays.
