Colour Doppler is a noninvasive test used for visually detecting motion or blood flow using a color map and can be used to estimate the blood flow through your blood vessels. Duplex / Doppler ultrasound is one of the most highly operator-dependent imaging modalities, the accuracy of which completely depends on the person performing the scan.
Origin of the Name : Named after Christian Andreas Doppler
Christian Andreas Doppler (/ˈdɒplər/; German: [ˈdɔplɐ]; 29 November 1803 – 17 March 1853) was an Austrian mathematician and physicist. He is celebrated for his principle — known as the Doppler effect — that the observed frequency of a wave depends on the relative speed of the source and the observer. He used this concept to explain the color of binary stars.
A Doppler ultrasound may help diagnose many conditions, including:
Poorly functioning valves in your leg veins in cases of varicose veins and venous insufficiency
Heart valve defects and congenital heart disease. 2d -echo
A blocked artery (arterial occlusion)
Decreased blood circulation into your legs (peripheral artery disease)
Bulging arteries (aneurysms)
Narrowing of an artery, such as in your neck (carotid artery stenosis)
