Carotid Ultrasound

This technology allows our cardiologists to image the arteries delivering blood to the brain (carotid arteries). Based on the velocity of the blood flow (doppler imaging) and the appearance of the vessels, our cardiologists can detect narrowing of the arteries. Early detection of arteriosclerosis (narrowing of the arteries) allows doctors to prescribe medications to prevent strokes or surgically widen the vessels supplying blood to the brain.
