What is echocolordoppler?

Echocolordoppler is a non-invasive method that, by visualising the major blood vessels (arteries, large abdominal vessels, supra-aortic trunks, venous system), allows the blood flow to be studied

The echocolordoppler provides colour images (red and blue) of venous and arterial flow, highlighting even the smallest lesions in the vessel walls and allowing their precise evaluation.

What is echocolordoppler used for?

Echocolordoppler can be very useful for studying and monitoring major vascular diseases (arterial and venous stenosis, aneurysms, thrombosis and venous insufficiency) or for detecting atherosclerotic lesions, the plaques that obstruct blood flow and can cause venous thrombi.

The test is used to reveal any aneurysms or stenosis and occlusions in the large abdominal blood vessels, pathologies that often develop without providing any particular symptoms.

If the area to be subjected to an echocolordoppler is the abdomen, the patient must be fasting.

This is because the abdominal vessels are located in the vicinity of the intestine, which, if not empty and free of air, can prevent a proper view on the ultrasound machine screen.

Who can have an echocolordoppler examination?

Anyone can undergo the test.

Is the echocolordoppler painful or dangerous?

The test is not painful or bothersome and has no contraindications.

How is the echocolordoppler performed?

The patient lies on the couch and a gel is applied to the part of the body to be examined.

The doctor then places a probe on it to obtain the images – which appear on the screen of the ultrasound machine – that will be used to make the diagnosis.

The echocolordoppler test takes about twenty minutes.
