- Arterial Doppler Examination.

Arterial Doppler Examination.
An Arterial Doppler evaluates the arterial blood flow of the body. It is used many times to evaluate the arteries of the legs.

It may be ordered when there is suspicion on exam or with symptoms suggestive of blockage of the arteries.

There is no radiation for this test as it uses sound waves and pressure cuffs.

This video shows how to interpret vascular arterial doppler signal wave-forms in a simple and informative fashion.
This is educational especially in teaching how to better utilise a simple hand-held Doppler.
