Carotid Duplex

We will perform a detailed scan including Doppler to look at the size, condition and blood flow through the following arteries in the neck:

  • common carotid arteries from their origin to bifurcation (split in two to feed different areas of the head and brain)

  • internal and external carotid arteries (bifurcation areas)

  • vertebral arteries

Common example for having this ultrasound screening is the detection or exclusion of:

  • plaque build-up and subsequent narrowing of the carotid arteries

We will provide a Radiologist report within 24 hours. 


Pre-scan preparation
This examination will require easy access to your neck so please wear appropriate loose clothing.
There are no special dietary requirements for this scan.
