Carotid Artery Scan

The carotid arteries are two arteries that take oxygenated blood from the heart to the brain. A carotid artery scan is a vascular ultrasound scan that can assess the flow of blood through the carotid arteries. It is also called a duplex scan because two ultrasound modes are used - B-mode and Doppler.

A transducer sends high frequency sound waves into the carotid arteries at certain angles. The waves are reflected off blood cells and again picked up by the transducer. The data is then sent to an amplifier that converts the high frequency waves into audible sound waves. Wherever sound is not audible or is very faint, it indicates that there is an obstruction in the artery.

All arteries in the body are susceptible to atherosclerosis, where they harden or become narrow due to deposition of plaque. The carotid arteries are not different. A carotid artery scan is a not an invasive scan, which means that the skin is not pierced.
