What is a Carotid Ultrasound?

Carotid ultrasounds are done specifically to view the carotid arteries which supply the brain with blood. There is one carotid artery on each side of a person’s neck.

A carotid ultrasound can show whether a substance called plaque has narrowed these arteries, a condition called carotid artery disease.

A carotid ultrasound test may include a Doppler ultrasound to show this condition even clearer than conventional ultrasounds.

Carotid ultrasounds are also performed in patients with transient ischemic attacks (TIAs) or strokes to determine whether there is a decreased blood supply to the brain. They can also monitor the condition of stents and surgery in and around the neck area.
