Ultrasonografía Doppler de una extremidad

La ultrasonografía Doppler examina el flujo sanguíneo de las principales arterias y venas en los brazos y piernas con el uso del ultrasonido (ondas sonoras de alta frecuencia que emiten una imagen del organismo). Este examen puede ayudar a diagnosticar un coágulo sanguíneo, insuficiencia venosa, oclusión arterial (cierre), anomalías en el flujo sanguíneo de las arterias producidas por un estrechamiento o trauma de las arterias.
