A carotid Doppler is a scan that uses ultrasound to examine the carotid arteries located in the neck. This test can show narrowing or possible blockages due to plaque build-up in the arteries due to coronary artery disease.
This is scan is recommended if you have any of the factors which increase your risk of stroke including:
- High blood pressure
- High cholesterol
- Family history of stroke or heart disease
- Recent transient ischaemic attached (TIA) or stroke
- Coronary artery disease
At London Centre for Advanced Cardiology, we can offer same day appointments for your carotid doppler ultrasound.
A copy of the full report will be provided to you at the end of the test, and the results explained by a consultant. Should you like to discuss your results with a specialist in more detail, we can organise a consultation promptly.
