Carotid Duplex

Carotid duplex is a non-invasive, painless procedure that allows your doctor to see how well blood is flowing from the carotid artery, located along both sides of the neck, to your brain.

Your doctor may suggest this test if they believe you have a blockage or narrowing of your carotid artery, or any symptoms of a blockage. Dizziness, confusion, drowsiness, and headache could all be indicators of blockage and early signs of a stroke.
