Doppler Ultrasound Fetal Middle Cerebral Artery
The sonogram is a test that looks at body organs with no radiation. It uses sound waves and can give us a 2 dimensional view of organs such as the kidney, liver, heart, and lungs. It can define spaces that are either solid or full of fluid. I can also guide large needles into an organ or near the spine, and can help define the area being cut open. Its a ...Read more
Had arterial doppler ultrasound. Would that show if clot has moved? Have radial artery occlusion. Chest pain and out if breath on and off.
Radial artery occ: The radial artery occlusion will not cause clot move to heart at all. U/s of artery can show blockage with clot if there, but no symptoms of hand may not need too much invasive treatment as the ulnar artery may supply whole hand not to cause pain or ischemia. Diatal arterial blood clots will go down to distal far away from heart, not backward unless clot in the heart with septal defect. ...Read more

Vascular variance: Unless there's a sx (pain, numbness, tingling), this finding is within the realm of normality. The anterior interosseus artery is a branch from the common interosseus artery from the ulnar artery in the volar forearm... The asymmetry may be simply due to your 'right-handedness'... No intervention is recommended... ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
