Doppler scan.

Posted , 3 users are following.

I was sent for a doppler scan by my GP on Tuesday everything i read said it was with an ultrasound probe, when i had it done it was with blood pressure cuffs on my arms and ankles the person doing the test called it a doppler. Does anyone have any information? 

Many Thanks

    I don't know about the dabbler designation, but my heart doctor performs a test with wraps on my ankles to test the blood flow in my legs. If the flow is not strong enough, that could cause problems with my feet, 

    I'm doing ok. Now. I had to have a stint  because of blockage. I was having trouble with my leg  and couldn't  walk around the block, No pain in feet though.
