Modern technology offers us various tools and methods of diagnosing your particular condition. During a consultation you will most likely have either Ultrasound or TCD/Echo used during your diagnosis process.
What is ultrasonography?
In ultrasonography (ultrasound), high-frequency sound waves, inaudible to the human ear, are transmitted through body tissues. The echoes are recorded and transformed into video or photographic images.
Ultrasound images help in the diagnosis of a wide range of diseases and conditions. The idea for ultrasonography came from sonar technology, which makes use of sound waves to detect underwater objects.
Ultrasound is used to create images of soft tissue structures and can also be used to detect blockages in the blood vessels. Ultrasound may be used with other diagnostic procedures or by itself.
What is a vascular ultrasound?
During a vascular ultrasound, sound waves are transmitted through the tissues of the area being examined. These sound waves reflect off blood cells moving within the blood vessels, allowing the reading physician to calculate their speed. The sound waves are recorded and displayed on a computer screen.
How long is the test?
The ultrasound takes about 30 to 90 minutes to complete. Please plan to arrive about 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment to complete the registration process.
Transcranial Doppler ultrasound (TCD) is a safe, painless, noninvasive method for assessing blood flow in the arteries and veins.
