Paper Abstract

Doppler ultrasound has become the most useful and versatile noninvasive technique for objective evaluation of clinical vascular disease. Commercially available continuous-waxe instruments provide qualitative and quantitative assessment of venous and arterial disease. Pulsed Doppler ultrasound has been developed to provide unique longitudinal and transverse cross-sectional images of the arterial lumen with a resolution approaching that of conventional x-ray techniques. This paper will review our current and anticipated application of Doppler ultrasound in venous, peripheral arterial, and cerebrovascular diseases.
