Color Doppler (CD) examination of the renal arteries

Starting from


Color Doppler (CD) examination of the renal arteries is a diagnostic procedure that uses ultrasound waves in conjunction with color Doppler technology to assess blood flow through the arteries that supply the kidneys. This examination helps detect issues such as narrowing or blockages in the renal arteries, which can impact blood flow to the kidneys.


Candidates for this examination are typically individuals who exhibit symptoms or are at risk of vascular problems in the kidney area. This includes individuals with high blood pressure, kidney diseases, or symptoms such as back pain or changes in kidney function.


In most cases, preparation for the examination 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 lies on their back during the examination. Application of gel: Gel is applied to the abdominal or back area, where the kidneys are located, 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 renal arteries and applies color Doppler technique for visualization and analysis of blood flow through these arteries.


The results of the examination provide information about blood flow through the renal arteries and help identify narrowing or blockages. These results assist in making a diagnosis and planning appropriate treatment.


After the examination, the patient can usually resume regular activities immediately. 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.
