Modern medicine has stepped far enough forward and now everyone can use this or that high-tech ways to prevent or reveal at the initial stages any illness.
The new medical equipment allows not only to look into the very depths of the human body and nature, but also to make it as painless as possible, so that the patient has only positive emotions from the procedure.

General information about dopplerography
Today, great importance in the research of the human body for diseases is givenX-ray and ultrasound (ultrasound). Both methods are constantly being improved and are capable of giving clear and correct results. It is difficult to imagine how many saved lives on the account for each of these methods of research.
The most difficult task for doctors has always beenthe detection of vascular diseases and the functioning of blood in the body. After all, the deviations in the work of blood vessels can lead to serious diseases, the result of which in some cases becomes fatal. Venous mesh is microscopic at times, than the organs of the human body, and therefore, it is much more difficult to study it.
It is worth to learn more about what it is before you contact the UZDG yourself.
What is assigned and what is displayed
Ultrasonic dopplerography of vessels is carried out both according to the indications of the doctor, and for the purpose of self-control over the state of his health. This procedureis based on the Doppler technique, as well as the principle of operation of all ultrasound devices.
During the procedureSound waves are involved, but do not be afraid of them, they are absolutely safe for the body (ultrasound is prescribed even for pregnant women). Waves pass through the tissues of the human body, but are reflected from moving objects. In this case, we are interested in the flow of blood in the vessels.
An image is sent to the monitor that builds a vascular network and in two-color format it shows how and with what velocity the fluid moves, whether there are obstructions and obstructions (thrombi) in its path, and also the blood flow itself can be considered well.
Modern apparatus for ultrasonic dopplerography can only give a doctor, who makes research,a complete picture of the functioning of your body, from which you will be based on the choice of treatment.
Assign this studyand adults and children. The primary task of such a procedure is to reveal the presence of disturbances in the blood supply system of the organism, or, to disprove their existence.
Studyhelps to identify the following deviations from the norm:
- increased or decreased blood flow rate;
- increased intracranial pressure;
- vascular lesions, which are inflammatory or atherosclerotic;
- abnormalities of blood vessels;
- violation of patency;
- pathological tortuosity.
This methodrecognized as the fastest and painless waycheck the blood vessels for proper functioning of the blood in them. In terms of effectiveness, it can only be compared with surgical intervention, which many people try to carefully avoid.
Applied methods, what parts of the body are being investigated
When carrying out ultrasonic dopplerography, the possibilities of just two devices - Doppler and ultrasound sensor - are used. This pair work is conditioned by achieving the desired effect:The ultrasound sensor shows how the vessels are located, what are their outlines, dimensions and contours, and Doppler allows you not only to see, but also to hear the movement of blood through the vessels, and also to understand its consistency.
During the procedure, manypatients hear a characteristic whistle.Someone writes it off on the peculiarity of the equipment, but in fact it is the sound of blood flowing through the vessels.
Predominantly considered by the USDH method vessels of the head and neck (brachiocephalic arteries). It is in these areas of the body that the most important areas of the blood supply are concentrated, investigating which, one can identify predisposition to certain diseases.
Periodically patients are prescribed ultrasound of vessels of the lower extremities or arms. The procedure can be performed on any body vessels.
Indications and contraindications
This study isabsolutely painless and harmless, therefore it is recommended to be used as absolutely healthy people, for the purpose of prevention, and for a clear diagnosis of those who suffer from any diseases.
Ultrasound dopplerographyhas no age restrictionsand can be assigned to both newborn children and people of age.
There are no contraindications for this study., however, if you can not stay in a lying position for a long time (a small child, a sick spine), then it is better to clarify this point with the doctor conducting the research to find the best solution to the problem.
If we talk about the testimony to the study, then there are a lot of them.
Visit ultrasound dopplerography will beuseful for people suffering:
- frequent migraines and headaches;
- vegetative-vascular dystonia;
- noise in the head;
- noisy in the ears;
- motion sickness;
- meteorological dependence;
- sleep disorders;
- disorders of blood circulation of the brain;
- after traumatic brain injury;
- frequent nervous breakdowns.
If we talk about children, then in addition to the above problems, the list can be added:
- decreased attention;
- bad memory;
- delay in the development of the speech apparatus;
- rapid decrease in vision.
Despite the fact that the procedure is painless and does not represent anything complicated, it is necessary to pay attention to the preparation.
To conduct ultrasound dopplerographybetter on an empty stomach, but there is not always the opportunity to be in the hospital in the morning. If your record is scheduled for lunch and evening time - do not deny yourself food, limit only the consumption of foods rich in glucose.
One week before the proposed studyit is necessary to give up alcohol and cigarettes. These negative factors affect the state of the vessels and can not contribute to an objective assessment of what is happening.
Otherwise, the Doppler procedure does not have any requirements to the patient, except calmness and a desire to get to the bottom of the truth.
How is the procedure performed
How do UZDG vessels - step by step:
- You need to sit comfortably on the couch in such a way that your arms are stretched along the trunk, and your eyes point clearly upwards.
The legs should be brought together, the back is not tense. Do not tilt your head, try to fix it, resting on the couch with the back of your head.
- The doctor, who conducts dopplerography, will apply a special gel to the sites (neck, head) that will help in the research. Therefore, in advance grab a napkin or after the procedure, ask them for a doctor.
- You will be connected to sensors that will read information about your heartbeat and breathing.
- With the help of the sensor, the places on which the gel was applied will be carefully examined and the image will be displayed.
- The doctor may ask you to take some action. For example, hold your breath, turn your head slightly, often breathe, raise your hands, strain your neck muscles. Sometimes, a specialist can push himself to certain points on the neck and head to check the patency of the blood flow.
Total,The procedure can last from twenty minutes to one hour. Time is allocated individually, depending on your state of health and the opportunity to do research.
Principles of decoding results
Get the decryption of results you can alreadya few minutes after the procedure. When examining your state of health, the location of blood vessels and arteries, their size, patency, uniformity, and also the consistency of blood and the speed of its passage are evaluated.
Upon completion of the study, aA summary table showing your performance against these criteria, and also left a transcript about what is within the norm, and what is inadmissible.
The result of ultrasound dopplerography isbasis for contacting a doctorwith a request for treatment, in case the study identified abnormalities.
Your attending physician should pay careful attention to the results obtained due to the US-dopplerography. Thanks to this diagnosis, you can identify:
- arterial disease of the extremities;
- diseases of the arteries of the head and spine;
- diseases that promote occlusion of carotid arteries;
- varicose veins.
All these conditions need treatment, so you should be prescribed appropriate medications after the diagnosis.
Excellent, if ultrasound with dopplerography of the vessels carried outat a certain interval. Then, seeing the dynamics of your condition, the doctor can not only diagnose, but also predict the further condition. In this case, you will be given advice on how to maintain your body in a healthy state.

Average prices in Russia and abroad
The cost of examining UZDG veins and arteries can varydepending on the region of our country. In addition, the price may depend on the equipment on which the research is carried out. The newer, more expensive and better the device, the higher the cost. What can we say about the professionalism of the doctor - specialist in ultrasound diagnostics.
If you have the opportunity to make this procedure abroad, you can spend on the procedurefrom 50 to 80 dollars (in Europe) and from 45 to 65 dollars in the US.
Our health is a very fragile thing, and not always we can see or feel the rudiments of the disease. Today, there are thousands of ways to verify your condition andultrasound dopplerography is one of the innovative.
This type of diagnosis is available to everyone, so do not delay your visit to the hospital. Perhaps, today you will see on the black and white monitor the makings of some disease and cope with them in a matter of days. Be healthy and take care of yourself.
