CEREBROVASCULAR EXAMINATIONS

Also known as the Carotid Duplex Exam


This test uses duplex ultrasonography to examine the carotid arteries in your neck.

It can determine if an artery is narrowing or being affected by a blockage, as well as follow patients who have known carotid artery disease or have had surgery or stents to correct carotid blockage. This examination is common for patients with symptoms such as Transient Ischemic Attack, a frank stroke, neck masses which may represent a carotid artery tumor, asymptomatic bruits, and/or non-hemispheric symptoms such as dizziness, syncope, or double vision.
