Peripheral Arterial Doppler Ultrasound – ABPI Two Limbs

Peripheral Arterial Doppler Ultrasound – ABPI Two Limbs - Price: £395

At London Private Ultrasound, we offer advanced diagnostic services, including Peripheral Arterial Doppler Ultrasound and Ankle Brachial Pressure Index (ABPI) assessment. These non-invasive procedures are crucial for evaluating blood flow and assessing vascular health in the arms and legs.

Peripheral Arterial Doppler Ultrasound:

Peripheral Arterial Doppler Ultrasound is a specialized imaging technique that utilizes high-frequency sound waves (ultrasound) to examine the blood vessels in the arms and legs. This procedure helps identify and locate blockages, stenosis (narrowing), or other abnormalities in the peripheral arteries, enabling early diagnosis and treatment of vascular conditions.

Ankle Brachial Pressure Index (ABPI):

ABPI measures blood pressure in the ankle and compares it to the pressure in the arm’s brachial artery, providing valuable insights into vascular health. This painless and non-invasive test aids in the early detection of Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD), guiding treatment decisions and reducing the risk of complications.

• Early Detection of Vascular Issues: These diagnostic tests allow for the early detection of vascular problems, including blockages, stenosis, or reduced blood flow, which can be indicative of PAD. • Guiding Treatment Decisions: The results help healthcare professionals determine the most appropriate treatment strategies, which may include lifestyle modifications, medications, or surgical interventions.
Peripheral Arterial Doppler Ultrasound and Ankle Brachial Pressure Index (ABPI) assessment include a thorough evaluation of the vascular health in the arms and legs. Here's what these procedures typically encompass: Peripheral Arterial Doppler Ultrasound: • High-Frequency Sound Wave Imaging: This procedure employs high-frequency sound waves (ultrasound) to generate real-time images of the blood vessels in the arms and legs. • Visualization of Blood Flow: Doppler ultrasound technology allows healthcare professionals to visualize blood flow patterns within the arteries. This enables the detection of any abnormalities, such as blockages or narrowing (stenosis). • Identification of Vascular Issues: The ultrasound can detect various vascular issues, including atherosclerosis (plaque buildup), blood clots, and other abnormalities that may impede blood flow. o Ankle Brachial Pressure Index (ABPI): • Blood Pressure Measurement: ABPI involves measuring blood pressure in the ankle and comparing it to the blood pressure in the arm's brachial artery. • ABPI Ratio Calculation: The results are used to calculate the ABPI ratio, which offers insights into the condition of the peripheral arteries. A normal ABPI ratio typically falls within the range of 0.9 to 1.3. • Early Detection of PAD: ABPI serves as a critical tool for the early detection of Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD). A lower ABPI value may indicate reduced blood flow to the legs, suggesting the presence of PAD. Both procedures are painless, non-invasive, and do not involve the use of needles or radiation. They are valuable for identifying vascular issues, guiding treatment decisions, and reducing the risk of cardiovascular complications. If you have specific questions about the details of these procedures or their relevance to your health, it's advisable to discuss them with your healthcare provider or the ultrasound clinic where you plan to have the tests done.
The duration may vary, but typically, these tests can be completed within 20 to 30 minutes, depending on individual circumstances.
No, neither procedure is painful and does not require needles or radiation.
Generally, no special preparations are required. Patients can continue their regular routines, including eating, drinking, and taking medications.
You will receive your results verbally after the scan. Besides, the practitioner will examine the relevant images after your appointment and prepare a written report after your scan or within 24 hours with any recommended actions.

Amazing service - worth it for peace of mind. I got an appointment within 24 hours. Excellent communication and all results were explained during the appointment by Ashleigh. She was so kind and took her time to answer any questions I had. If I need another ultrasound I’ll be coming back. Thank you!

Today, my wife had an early pregnancy ultrasound, and we are extremely grateful for Miss Ashleigh's patience and thorough explanation. We are reassured to know that our baby is doing well. Thank you, Miss Ashleigh, for providing such excellent care and support during this special time.

My practitioner, I think his name was Mr Mikhael, was very professional and kind. He put me at ease and was very patient. And gave me information as to the best socks to buy to avoid swelling in the heat.
