Carotid Scan

Our clinic offers the carotid scan to male patients over 45 years of age. This type of ultrasound scan includes a Doppler ultrasound to investigate the condition and the blood flow through the internal and external carotid arteries, the vertebral arteries and the common carotid arteries from their point of origin until the bifurcation.

Why take the carotid scan?

This ultrasound screening is required when the patient wishes to detect or to exclude the presence of plaque build up and the resulting narrowing of the carotid arteries.

How to prepare for the carotid scan?

While there are no special dietary requirements for this type of scan, we advise you to wear clothes that allow easy access to your neck.

We use gently warmed Ultrasound Gel to help you relax, and make you feel comfortable during your scan.
