Doppler Vs Duplex Ultrasound
An ultraound, also known as a sonogram, is a painless and relatively inexpensive imaging test that utilizes sound waves instead of ionizing radiation. There are no side effects. Ultrasound can give us two-dimensional, and in some applications three-dimensional, images of structures and organs in virtually any part of the body. In addition to diagnostic uses, such as evaluating abnormalities in the abdomen, pelvis, and breast, ultrasounds are commonly used to guide needle and catheter placement in a variety of surgical ...Read more
Yes: It is a good screening test for carotid arteries. The more stenosis or blockage the more risk you would have of having a stroke or mini stroke.
Different: Criteria may be used. Best to discuss results with your doctor. Results not always straight forward.

I have like lumps in my forearms veins. In duplex ultrasound (no superficial, no deep thronbosis, no venous insufficiency).Noticeable in stress or cold?
Cysts: They could be some kind of cystic like lesions, for example sebaceous, lipomas or fibromas which are simple and non malignant. They should cause you no harm. Good luck
No screening: There is nothing called screening for mesenteric stenosis. If you have no symptoms then you no need to screen for occlusion. If you have chronic symptoms then duplex ultrasound is a good starting test but has a lot of limitations. In cases of acute ischemia then ct scan is best to start with.See 2 more doctor answers

Carotid artery disease, what to believe, if different results from duplex ultrasound vs. Ct angiogram (cta)?
Doppler ultrasound: A doppler ultrasound uses sound waves to measure flow through vessels. When blood goes through a vessel it changes the sound waves in a way that will give us an idea if there is any obstruction or reduction in flow. This is very noninvasive and very helpful.See 1 more doctor answer
To check blood flow: Doppler ultrasound gives information about blood flow, increased, decreased, velocity + direction or absence. Very useful in making or confirming many diagnoses and used to examine many organ systems including, but not limited to heart, blood vessels, liver. Kidney, ovary or testis to rule out torsion.See 1 more doctor answer

Why couldn't my baby heartbeat be found on a Doppler at 9 weeks and 4 days? Now I'm very scared and nervous waiting on my ultrasound appointment which is in a week.
Heartbeat on doppler: In most cases, everything is ok. It may be that the lie of the fetus is so that it's hard to detect its heartbeat with a doppler machine. It's not that uncommon not to hear heart beat with a doppler machine at this gestational age. I agree things like miscarriage happen, but again in most cases, it's ok.See 2 more doctor answers
Really not much: By convention the red usually means blood flow toward the ultrasound transducer and blue is flow away.
Not necessary: A doppler ultrasound is a painless exam. There should be no need for an anxiolytic medication. If you have a condition that will cause you to have undue anxiety for an ultrasound exam, you should discuss it with your physician so that proper measures can be taken, and medication prescribed in the rare event that it is needed.
