This scan is available to men from 45 years of age.
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 Sonographer report at the time with a Medical Follow Up Recommendation if necessary.
Using the latest cloud technology, Ultrasound Direct can send your scan images and report to you in seconds using Ultrasound Direct toMOBILE. This secure online service is available with every scan performed in an Ultrasound Direct clinic at no extra cost.
