A Doppler ultrasound, also called a Color Doppler test is a non-invasive test that can be used to estimate blood flow in your blood vessels. This will help in detecting narrowing and hardening of the abdominal aorta which supplies blood to various organs of the body.


Why is DOPPLER - ABDOMINAL AORTA done ?

Alterations of the abdominal aorta(The abdominal aorta is the largest artery in the abdomen that provides blood to the organs and tissues of the abdomen, pelvis, and legs. It descends from the thorax as a continuation of the thoracic aorta and branches several times to form the major arteries of the abdomen.) are relatively common, particularly in older people. Because Doppler US can be done rapidly and is also non-invasive, it plays a major role in the exploration of the abdominal aorta, from its emergence from the diaphragm to its bifurcation. It is indicated for the diagnosis and follow-up of various aortic diseases, especially aneurysms. It can be used to define the shape, size, and location of these lesions, the absence or presence of thrombi and their characteristics. It is also useful for monitoring the evolution of the lesion and for postoperative follow-up.
