Arterial Doppler (Duplex) Arms

Patient Information

Your doctor has ordered an Arterial Doppler exam of your arms. This is a noninvasive, ultrasound test. The sonographer will put a cool gel on your arms and pass a transducer (probe) along your arms to scan your arteries. This is to evaluate the blood flow in your arteries, to determine if there are any blockages caused by a plaque build up causing obstruction of the blood flow to your feet. You will also have blood pressures taken in your arms and legs. This is a painless procedure, and there is no preparation.

Please arrive 10 minutes before your scheduled appointment. If you need to reschedule your appointment, or if you have any questions, please feel free to call our office.
