Specializes in Cardiology

Partly yes.: An echocardiogram would not show carotid or coronary arteries directly; it would show the status of your valves and help rule out structural abnormalities. A ct angiogram could show coronary artery status but might not image high enough to show the carotid arteries.

No : Need formal carotid ultrasound or cta, to correctly evaluate these vessels. See radiologyinfo.Org.
