Doppler ultrasound is a special ultrasound technique that evaluates movement of materials in the body. It allows the doctor to see and evaluate blood flow through arteries and veins in the body. What are some common uses of the procedure? Sonography is a useful way of evaluating the body's circulatory system. Vascular ultrasound is performed to: help monitor the blood flow to organs and tissues throughout the body. locate and identify blockages (stenosis) and abnormalities like plaque or emboli and help plan for their effective treatment. detect blood clots (deep venous thrombosis (DVT) in the major veins of the legs or arms. determine whether a patient is a good candidate for a procedure such as angioplasty. evaluate the success of procedures that graft or bypass blood vessels. determine if there is an enlarged artery (aneurysm). evaluate varicose veins. How should I prepare? Wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing. You may need to remove all clothing and jewelry in the area to be examined. You may be asked to wear a gown during the procedure. If your abdominal vessels are being examined, unless the examination is performed on an urgent basis, it is best to fast before the procedure.
