Understanding Carotid Ultrasounds

RestoreMe’s Carotid Ultrasound program offers a proactive approach to cardiovascular health by providing early detection of potential issues through advanced imaging technology. Our non-invasive, cost-effective screenings are essential for identifying silent conditions such as plaque buildup and arterial stiffness, which are often undetectable by standard lab tests. By enabling patients to take preemptive action against stroke and other cardiovascular diseases, we’re committed to enhancing patient care and empowering individuals with the knowledge to make informed health decisions. RestoreMe is your partner in the pursuit of a healthier, heart-protected future.

At RestoreMe, we believe in proactive healthcare. That’s why we’re proud to offer an advanced carotid ultrasound program designed to take preventive measures against cardiovascular diseases. Unlike traditional approaches that often recommend such tests only after an incident, our functional medicine clinic utilizes carotid ultrasound imaging as a routine screening tool for early detection.

The arteries in your neck, known as the carotid arteries, are vital pathways for blood to reach your brain. Our carotid ultrasound service provides a real-time visual examination of these arteries, revealing crucial information about their condition that can’t always be detected through standard lab tests. We look beyond normal lab results to identify plaque buildup and arterial wall stiffness, which are key indicators of potential cardiovascular issues.

By integrating this advanced imaging technique into our practice, we have taken a significant step towards enhancing patient care. Our approach is simple and non-invasive, yet it offers a comprehensive insight into your vascular health. And the best part? We’ve made it accessible and affordable, ensuring that cost doesn’t stand in the way of your wellbeing.

Individuals who report persistent, unexplained headaches, blurry or double vision, or a ringing in the ears known as tinnitus may also benefit from a carotid ultrasound. While these symptoms can have multiple causes, they can sometimes be attributed to carotid artery disease or other vascular issues that affect cerebral blood flow. The ability to visualize the condition of the arteries with ultrasound allows for a more accurate assessment and can guide further treatment.

Additionally, those with known risk factors for cardiovascular disease—such as hypertension, high cholesterol, diabetes, or a family history of heart disease—should consider regular monitoring with carotid ultrasound. Even in the absence of overt symptoms, this non-invasive test can identify silent yet significant markers of vascular health risks and is a prudent step in a comprehensive preventative health strategy.

A carotid ultrasound can help in identifying and monitoring various conditions:

  • Atherosclerosis: The program excels at detecting plaque buildup within the carotid arteries, which can significantly reduce blood flow and lead to atherosclerosis, a major risk factor for stroke.

  • Carotid Artery Disease: By measuring the thickness of the arterial walls and the presence of plaque, we can assess the risk of carotid artery disease and its potential to cause ischemic events.

  • Arterial Stiffness: The ultrasound can evaluate the flexibility of the artery walls, with stiffness being an early indicator for potential cardiovascular issues.

  • Blood Flow Problems: The velocity of blood flow is examined during the ultrasound, helping to identify any abnormalities or restrictions in circulation that could signal vascular problems.

  • Vascular Conditions: Beyond the carotid arteries, this test can also shed light on other related vascular conditions that might otherwise go unnoticed until they become serious health concerns.

A carotid ultrasound is a non-invasive imaging test that uses sound waves to create detailed pictures of the carotid arteries in your neck, which supply blood to your brain. It helps detect blockages or narrowing that could lead to a stroke.

It’s performed to evaluate the risk of stroke, to monitor known carotid artery disease, or to check the effectiveness of treatment if you’ve had procedures to remove blockages.

No special preparation is necessary. You can eat and drink as usual and take your medications as prescribed. Just wear comfortable clothing and avoid necklaces or other jewelry around your neck.

No, the procedure is painless. You may feel some pressure as the ultrasound transducer is applied against your skin but there should be no pain.

Typically, the test takes about 30 minutes to complete.

It shows the structure of your carotid arteries, including any plaque buildup, blood flow, and the thickness of the artery walls.

There are no known risks. It’s a safe procedure that doesn’t expose you to radiation.

Yes, you can return to your normal activities immediately after the test. There’s no downtime required.

The frequency depends on your individual risk factors and existing health conditions. Your healthcare provider will recommend how often you should have this test based on your medical history.
