Doppler Ultrasound

A doppler ultrasound evaluates the blood flow in veins and arteries of the legs and arms. A doppler ultrasound uses a transducer, a handheld device, to check veins and arteries. The transducer is moved over the veins and arteries to be evaluated and pictures are created. A doppler ultrasound is done to check for blood clots, hardening of the arteries or veins that are having problems in transporting blood.
