Renal Artery Duplex

We will perform a detailed scan of renal arteries to evaluate the vessels that supply blood to the kidneys

Common examples for having this ultrasound scan are:

  • Look for blockages or narrowing of the renal arteries which may contribute to hypertension or renal dysfunction.

  • Monitor existing renal artery disease, or follow-up after surgical intervention.

We will provide a Radiologist report within 24 hours.
