Why is DOPPLER - TEMPORAL done ?

Giant cell arteritis (GCA) is a common granulomatous vasculitis affecting medium- to large-sized arteries. It may also be known as temporal arteritis or cranial arteritis, given its propensity to involve the extra-cranial carotid artery branches such as the temporal artery. This is the doppler of the temporal.

Why is DOPPLER - TEMPORAL ?

A Doppler ultrasound is a test that uses high-frequency sound waves to measure the amount of blood flow through your arteries and veins, usually those that supply blood to your arms and legs. Vascular flow studies, also known as blood flow studies, can detect abnormal flow within an artery or blood vessel. This can help to diagnose and treat a variety of conditions, including blood clots and poor circulation. A Doppler ultrasound can be used as part of a blood flow study. A Doppler ultrasound is a risk-free and pain-free procedure that requires little preparation. The test provides your doctor with important information about the flow of blood through your major arteries and veins. It can also reveal blocked or reduced blood flow through narrowed areas in the arteries, which could eventually lead to a stroke.
