Carotid, vertebral, and subclavian arteries ultrasound uses high frequency sound waves to assess the blood vessels of the body, which are called the veins and arteries. These exams are often ordered to check the flow of blood to brain and assess the risk for a stroke.
We do our best to have our radiologists interpret the information and forward the results to your doctor by the next business day.
This exam is covered under your Alberta Health Care Plan. It is not currently offered at our Saskatchewan clinics.
Please ensure that you bring your requisition with you to your appointment.
