Arterial Duplex Test Dayton, OH

Arterial Duplex TestingAn Overview

An arterial duplex ultrasound is a quick, non-invasive exam that uses high-frequency sound waves to capture imaging of the major arteries. An arterial duplex ultrasound can help a physician determine if there are any blockages or narrowing in the arteries.

Why is arterial duplex testing performed?

Arterial duplex testing can be used:

  • Address resting leg pain
  • Skin discoloration
  • Identify narrowed vessels
  • Evaluate any sores or ulcers
  • Identify the reason for tingling, tightness, or numbness

An arterial duplex ultrasound can help your physician determine if any of the symptoms listed above are linked to a more severe health condition.

Arterial Duplex Testing What to Expect

How To Prepare

Your physician will review any preparation requires before your ultrasound. In most cases, patients won’t need to follow any strict preparation requirements.

What To Expect

The technician will spread the gel over the designated area, depending on the type of study ordered. Once the gel is applied, your technician will carefully glide a transducer over the designated area to produce images of your arteries.

The images are used to identify any blockages in the arteries. Your technician may ask you to change position or take deep breaths throughout the test to produce more images.

Once testing is complete, your physician will asses analyze the results and determine if further testing or treatment is needed.
