Why is a Colour Doppler performed ?
There are many situations where your doctor will ask you to undergo a Colour Doppler test. To note down a few:
- Deep vein thrombosis (DVT), a condition wherein blood clot forms in the veins of your leg or hip area.
- Superficial thrombophlebitis, an inflammation that is caused in the veins due to a blood clot just below the skin's surface.
- Arteriosclerosis, a situation where the arteries that supply blood to the legs and feet become narrow and hard.
