Colour Dopler

Test Significance: A Doppler ultrasound, also called a Colour Doppler test, is a non-invasive test that can be used to estimate your blood flow through blood vessels. It helps doctors evaluate blood flow through major arteries and veins, such as those of the arms, legs, and neck. It can show blocked or reduced flow of blood through narrow areas in the major arteries of the neck that could cause a stroke. It can also detect blood clots in leg veins (deep vein thrombosis, or DVT), which can break free and block blood flow to the lungs (pulmonary embolism).During pregnancy, Doppler ultrasound may be used to examine blood flow in an unborn baby (the foetus) to determine the foetus's health.
