Together=Duplex: Doppler involves the use of reflected sound waves to evaluate the flow of blood in vessels. Vascular ultrasound evaluates the structure and architecture of blood vessels and can be used to visualize blockages in arteries and veins. Using these together is called a duplex scan and is what vascular labs all utilize for diagnosis. Always look to see that the lab you go to is accredited by icavl!
