Sometimes, doctors find a way to use technology that hits all the right notes — it’s easy on your body, gives fast results, and doesn’t cause any side effects. That’s just the case with Doppler ultrasound, which gives doctors a way to see what’s going on inside your body without X-rays or injections.
Instead, it turns sound waves into images. Your doctor can use it to check for issues with blood flow, such as clots in your veins or blockages in your arteries.It’s one of the main ways to test for deep vein thrombosis (DVT) — a condition where blood clots form in veins deep in your body, usually in your legs. DVT can lead to more serious problems, such as a clot in your lungs. It can be life-threatening. So it’s important to get tested if you have symptoms.
Beyond the stunning 3-dimensional and 4-dimensional images that grab everyone’s attention, the Doppler capability of ultrasound is perhaps the most fascinating and informative. It is used in pregnancy to study blood circulation in the fetus, uterus and placenta. Doppler ultrasound uses sound waves to detect the movement of blood in vessels, specifically the movement of red blood cells. Those sound waves then are reflected back towards the ultrasound probe that is on the maternal abdomen, when the sound comes in contact with the red blood cells. By comparing the character of the sound waves sent by the ultrasound to the character of the returning sound waves, an ultrasound image is generated.
