The New York Cardiac Diagnostic Center offers Carotid Vascular Ultrasound testing (sometimes referred to as a “duplex study”) of the carotid arteries which is a simple, safe and painless in-office test that produces pictures of blood circulation using sound waves.
A vascular ultrasound is safe, noninvasive, effective, and painless. (It’s the same technology used to image babies in the womb of pregnant women.)
This cardiac test is primarily used to determine if an individual has significant plaque in the carotid artery which would increase the risk of stroke.
Vascular disease screening is a painless, noninvasive test.
The ultrasound takes about 30 minutes to complete. Please plan to arrive about 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment to complete the registration process.
