doppler-ultrasound-webDoppler Ultrasound is a non-invasive test that can be utilized to examine blood flow by bouncing high frequency acoustic wave (ultra sound) off red blood cells.

Doppler ultrasound may be made use of to help identify lots of conditions, however, within our practice it is mainly utilized in the assessment of peripheral vascular condition in the lower limb.

The conditions consist of:

  • A blocked artery
  • Narrowing (stenosis) of an artery
  • Periarticular swelling
  • Peroneal, anterior tibial tendonitis, tears, and ruptures
  • Bursitis: metatarsal, retrocalcaneal, etc.
  • Ultrasound-guided injections
  • Plantar fascia inflammation and tears
  • Neuromas
  • Achilles tears, ruptures, and tendonitis

  • Fibromas
  • Cysts
  • Ganglions
  • Fractures, contusions, bone injuries
  • Ligament tears, strains, etc.
  • Heel spurs
  • Muscle injuries
  • Joint capsulitis and swelling
  • Foreign bodies

Our Doppler ultra sound unit is linked to a printer so that a hard copy of the waveform produced can be retained in your notes and can be referred to for comparison at a later date.
