In brief: At a vascular lab

You should preferrentially go to an accredited vascular lab.
You should ask if the vascular lab or radiology center is icavl approved and if they do many carotid vascular studies. There is a lot of dependence on the technician for the result on carotid ultrasounds, and errors can occur and maybe dangerous.

You should find an icavl accredited vascular lab.
Many physicians will perform studies. The icavl is a multidisciplinary organizations that accredits labs- which means that the tests are more likely to be accurate. Vascular surgeons, cardiologists, radiologists, and neurologists all participate in this process.
