Color Doppler ultrasound at New Life hospitals
Color Doppler ultrasound comes as a noninvasive test that is aimed to test and diagnose the flow of blood via blood vessels by triggering high-frequency sound waves (ultrasound) off the red blood cells in the blood.
It is highly different from the regular ultrasound and uses a computer to transform sound waves to different colors. All of these colors showcase the speed and course of blood flow in real time.
Color Doppler ultrasound may be used for the following health issues:
- Blood clots
- badly functioning valves within the leg veins, that may trigger the blood or other fluids to collect in your legs (venous insufficiency)
- defects in Heart valve or congenital heart disease
- In case of a blocked artery (arterial occlusion)
- Deteriorated blood circulation into legs (peripheral artery disease)
- Fattening arteries (aneurysms)
- contraction of an artery, like in the neck (carotid artery stenosis)
A Color Doppler ultrasound can confirm about the blood flow speed by checking on the rate of change within its pitch (frequency). During a Color Doppler Ultrasound, a medical expert or lab technician with professional training in ultrasound imaging (monographer) uses a small hand-held device (transducer) that comes as the same size to that of your palm.
The device will then be moved on your body ( area that is supposed to be examined) and the process will continue for few minutes.
This test comes as a perfect alternative to more-invasive options like angiography, that include the process of infusing dye into the blood vessels to let them show up clearly in an X-Ray report.
A Color Doppler ultrasound test will further help and assist the doctors at New Life Hospitals to check for any unwanted issues or injuries on the monitor. This way, the doctors can recommend the required treatment option when and wherever required.
How Color Doppler ultrasound proves crucial in Pregnancy?
One of the major objectives of routine antenatal care is to check for babies who are undergoing certain medical issues within the womb. So, with a timely medical intervention, Doctors or medical experts can help the child before its birth.
Color Doppler ultrasound uses colored sound waves to check and monitor the movement of blood in vessels. It is therefore helpful in pregnancy as it studies and observe the blood circulation within the baby’s body, uterus and placenta.
Using Color Doppler Ultrasound in case of high-risk pregnancies is quite common. With all the high concerns regarding the baby’s health, this kind of diagnosis can actually prove helpful. However, the importance of this ultrasound option cannot be justified for all the pregnancies as this may result in unnecessary interference to the patient’s reproductive organs and may bring further side effects.
