A venous Doppler test can help your doctors diagnose peripheral vascular disease, which can prevent your blood from flowing to or from your heart as smoothly as it should. The results will help your doctor develop the best treatment plan for your condition.

Overview

Your physician may recommend this noninvasive ultrasound to diagnose blockages or narrow passages in your blood vessels. During a venous Doppler test, a technician passes a small device called a transducer over your arms and legs as it reflects and records sound waves. Depending on your condition, your physician may recommend follow-up procedures to test and treat your heart disease.
