The Doppler Ultrasound machine has high-end transducers that capture your blood flow in color, allowing your doctor to quickly spot the aberrations in blood flow caused by tumors, issues in your blood vessels, infections or other harmful abnormalities.
During a Doppler ultrasound, a small hand-held device (transducer) is pressed against the area of the skin which requires examination and moved along to cover the area as required.
Color Doppler scan is performed to:
Check the blood flow of a pregnant woman and her baby.
Diagnose gallbladder disease.
Guide a needle for biopsy or tumor treatment.
Evaluate a breast lump.
Check your thyroid gland.
Evaluate the flow in your heart vessels.
Diagnose some forms of infection.
Diagnose some forms of cancer.
Reveal abnormalities in the genitalia and prostate area.
Evaluate abnormalities of the muscles.
Previous ultrasound scans for the same problem, if any.
Doctor’s note for the scan.
Total time – 1 hr.
On table time – 30 mins.
Yes (Confirm by calling on 8869906990 before arriving at the centre)
Details of any significant medical history or surgery should be mentioned before the test.
Once the patient is settled on the table a special gel is applied on the area of the body which needs to be tested.
When a transducer is moved over the gel area.
Whe device sends sound waves into your body which causes the blood flow to change.
This is recorded and turned into images or graphs.
The test takes a total time of an hour.
Once the recording is done you can wipe the gel from your body and await the report.
For appointment call 8869906990 or write at email@example.com atleast 1 or 2 days prior to the required date of appointment.
(if another scheduled patient has cancelled we may consider taking in walk-in patients. Do check in with our reception and our billing executives at our centre.)
We may have to reschedule or cancel appointments at times because of reasons beyond our control – short-supply or no supply of the isotope used for the scan from an external source, machine breakdowns, etc.
As we have no control over this situation, Medcare Diagnostics would not be held liable for any harm or loss arising out of such cancellations.
