Prep for Carotid, Leg & Arm Ultrasounds


Please wear comfortable, loose clothing and walking shoes in case treadmill exercise testing is necessary. We may ask you to remove your clothing and dress in a gown we will provide.

The following information lists the special instructions for the ultrasound that's been ordered for you.

The ultrasound is used to see and study blood flow in the arteries in the neck and the veins in the arms and legs.

Please arrive and check in at our registration desk 15 minutes before your exam. We will escort you to our ultrasound area. There is no special preparation for this exam. You may eat and drink.

You should plan to be in our department for 45-75 minutes.
