When a doctor needs to record echoes from blood cells, they will use an echo doppler. An Echo Doppler is an ultrasound that allows sound waves to bounce off your heart and blood vessels. This gives a chance to see narrowed blood vessels or improper heart valve function. Doctors may perform this test to diagnose coronary artery disease or atherosclerosis.
Common Reasons for Needing an Echo Doppler:
Upon arriving at our medical center for an echo doppler, we will rub cool gel on your body to perform the test. We check the blood flow in the legs, arms, carotid artery, the heart, and the blood vessels supplying it. A small handheld wand will pick up on the sound waves in your blood vessels when moved over the specific area. It’s fast, painless, and finishes within 30 minutes. Our doctors will make sure you feel at home.
