Doppler Ultrasound

Purpose

Doppler Ultrasound examination enables us to examine blood circulation in various parts of the body as well as the arteries and veins.  We can gain information regarding the blood vessel walls, their width and condition, the velocity of blood flow and the increase or decrease of vascular resistance.  

When examining venal circulation we look for the presence of thrombosis in the veins and check for occlusion.  When examining the limbs, we look for dilated varicose veins, inadequate venous valves and check the condition of deep veins.  When examining arterial circulation, we mainly look at the condition of the vessel walls, check for calcium deposits, narrowing and its extent.

What areas of the body may be examined?

The areas of the body most often examined with Doppler are the veins of the neck and the upper and lower limbs, possibly also the veins of the internal organs.

Special circulatory system examinations are possible of both the fetus and the mother during pregnancy.

Advance preparation

Examinations of the blood vessels of the limbs and of the neck and during pregnancy do not require preparation.  Examinations of the abdominal veins are best done when the Patient’s stomach and the intestines are empty.

Contraindications

There are no contraindications since the ultrasound is not dangerous to the human body.

Patient safety protocol

We consider the safety of our patients and our professionals to be of the utmost importance, therefore, in accordance with the current regulations in force, we implement several protective measures against COVID-19 in our Institute, which you can read about in detail HERE. A negative PCR test is required for oral and other body cavity examinations or interventions if the patient had a positive PCR test in the last 3 weeks prior to the test.

The high level of interest in coronavirus testing has proportionally increased the workload of our telephone customer service. In order to improve our service, we provide a dedicated telephone line for corona virus test appointments: +36 1 999-1727
At the above telephone number - on weekdays between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. - our colleagues only book appointments for coronavirus testing.
