Color Doppler (CD) examination of the arteries and veins of the legs

Starting from


Color Doppler (CD) examination of the arteries and veins of the legs is a diagnostic procedure that uses ultrasound waves in conjunction with color Doppler technology to assess blood flow through the arteries and veins in the leg area. This examination helps identify issues such as narrowing of arteries, enlarged veins, or other vascular changes in the lower extremities.


Candidates for this examination typically include individuals who exhibit symptoms or are at risk of vascular problems in the legs. This may encompass individuals experiencing leg pain, swelling, changes in skin color, or other symptoms related to circulation in the lower limbs.


In most cases, preparation for the CD examination of the arteries and veins of the legs is minimal. The patient usually does not require special preparations or fasting. The doctor will provide specific guidelines, including any need for fasting before the examination.


Patient's position: The patient typically lies on their back during the examination. Application of gel: Gel is applied to the leg area to improve contact between the skin and the ultrasound probe. Ultrasound examination with color Doppler technology: The doctor or ultrasound technician uses an ultrasound probe to create images of the arteries and veins and applies color Doppler technique to analyze blood flow through these blood vessels.


The results of the examination provide information about blood flow through the arteries and veins of the legs. The doctor analyzes these images to identify potential vascular changes or disorders.


After the examination, the patient can typically resume regular activities. Special precautions are not necessary. It is important to follow the doctor's instructions regarding any further treatment steps, as needed based on the examination results.
