Arterial Doppler Testing Helps Diagnose the Following Conditions:

  • Blood clots
  • Poor functioning valves in your veins
  • Heart valve defects and congenital heart disease
  • Bulging arteries
  • Blocked arteries
  • Decreased blood circulation

What is an Arterial Doppler Test?

An arterial doppler testing is a painless exam that uses ultrasound to capture internal images of the major arteries in patients' arms, legs, and neck. Using a wand-like device, the specialist examines your body by passing over lightly on the skin of the area being monitored. A leg arterial ultrasound helps get an inside look at the arteries in your legs.

Leg arterial ultrasounds in our Hicksville facility help scan the movement of blood through a patient's arteries and veins and check for any blockages. A blocked arteries testing also shows if there is any plaque buildup and is used to detect peripheral vascular disease.

When is arterial doppler testing necessary?

Arterial doppler specialists at LI Medical Group’s Farmingdale center recommend their patients to undergo the ultrasound in the following conditions:

  • Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT), a condition caused by blood clotting in the veins of the leg or hip area;
  • Superficial Thrombophlebitis, visible inflammation of the veins due to blood clots;
  • Arteriosclerosis, when arteries that supply blood to the legs and feet become narrow and hardened;
  • Fluid deposit in your limbs due to improper blood supply;
  • Decreased blood supply to your legs; or
  • Bulging arteries.

How to prepare for an Arterial Doppler Test?

At LI Medical Group, you get the most comfortable diagnostic experience with our medical staff and their compassionate approach. So, you don’t have to worry about a thing and let our team take care of you.

During Arterial Doppler Testing at our Hicksville center,

  • You may be asked to wear a hospital gown during the procedure. It is a completely painless, non-invasive ultrasound and thus, there are no risks involved.
  • You don’t need to remove your jewelry, contact lenses, or dentures.
  • However, your doctor may ask you to stop smoking a few hours before the test as smoking can constrict blood vessels, compromising the test results.

Apart from this, your arterial doppler testing is guaranteed to be a smooth sail at our state-of-the-art facility. So, schedule your appointment with our specialist at the earliest.

Dr. Fagan and his team at the LI Medical Group are highly experienced in managing any of the above-mentioned conditions. So, consult with our primary care physicians and get the arterial doppler testing done today at Farmingdale Facility.
