Vascular Scanning in "ON Clinic Kharkov"

Vascular scanning is a non-invasive method of ultrasound diagnostics, which allows the docotr to evaluate general condition of the blood vessels and the blood.

Duplex vascular scanning is a combined diagnostic method that combines B-regimen (vascular assessment) and Doppler (blood flow assessment). This test allows specialists not only to see the structural features of the vessels and the condition of their walls but also to assess the quality of the blood flow.

Duplex scanning (dopplerography) of the vessels of the head and neck visualizes vessel patency, helps to identify local stenosis/occlusion or to detect atherosclerotic lesions and other pathological changes.

Duplex scanning of the arteries and veins of the lower and upper extremities can be performed in:

  • Varicose veins

  • Thrombosis

  • Thrombophlebitis

  • Vasculitis

  • Stenosis

  • Injuries.

Doplerography of the veins of the lower or upper extremities is a quick way to detect problems without using invasive diagnostics.

In addition to as duplex scanning of the vessels of the neck or extremities, our specialists also perform ultrasound of the abdominal aorta. This method allows them to visualize the signs of an aneurysm, to assess the presence of plaques in atherosclerosis, to see changes in the lumen or vascular tortuosity.

When is it necessary to scan the vessels?

The vessels of the head and neck are examined if the patient has the following complaints:

  • Headaches

  • Flickering "flies" before the eyes

  • Noise in the ears

  • Dizziness.

If you have these symptoms, undergo dopplerography of the vessels of the neck as soon as possible because delay in the examination and untimely treatment can lead to complications.

It is also useful in the following diseases and conditions:

  • Migraine

The veins of the extremities are scanned in trophic ulcers and complaints such as a feeling of heaviness, itching, and swelling of the legs, cold extremities, impaired sensation, enlargement and swelling of the veins.

Some of these symptoms can be evidence of both the vascular and neurological pathology. Therefore, duplex scanning is prescribed to make a differential diagnosis, which lets the doctor to exclude a certain disease, to understand the cause of the patient's problem and the mechanism of the disorder, and to choose a correct treatment approach.
