A carotid artery screening, also known as a duplex scan, is an abbreviated vascular ultrasound study done to assess the blood flow and wall structure of the arteries in the neck that supply blood from the heart to the face and brain. There are six carotid arteries, three on each side: the Y-shaped common carotid artery divides and forms the internal carotid artery and the external carotid artery.
The term “duplex” refers to the fact that two modes of ultrasound are used, which evaluate the velocity and direction of blood flow to indicate stroke risk and obtain the image of the intima and media wall thickness for heart disease risk.
