An Arterial Doppler Ultrasound can detect peripheral vascular disease (PVD). This is the slow process of plaque accumulating inside the walls of the arteries and restricting blood flow. This test is usually done if a patient is complaining of leg pain after walking.
An Arterial Doppler Ultrasound takes about 45 minutes. An ultrasound technician will ask you to lie on a table. Then an acoustic ultrasound gel is spread on the skin surface. As the sensor is moved, images of your arterial blood flow are displayed on a monitor and recorded. After this assessment your healthcare provider will notify you of the results.
