A Carotid Doppler ultrasound scan serves to image the arteries in the patient’s neck to assess whether they are at risk for stenosis of these vessels or a stroke. The most common reason for referral for this procedure is when a bruit is heard by the patient’s doctor with a stethescope. This examination is a quick, non-invasive way of confirming or excluding blockage of the arteries or build-up of plaque which may pose a future threat to the patient.
