(This procedure/test may also be known as: Carotid Ultrasound, Vascular Ultrasound)
Carotid duplex is an ultrasound test that shows how well blood is flowing through the carotid arteries. The carotid arteries are located in the neck. They supply blood to the brain.
The test can detect blood clotting (thrombosis); narrowing in the arteries (stenosis); and other causes of blockage in the carotid arteries. It can also show whether your child has had a stroke.
