Carotid Duplex Screening

Carotid duplex screening is a safe, simple, painless and completely non-invasive procedure for patients who may be at risk for stroke. Almost 40 percent of strokes originate from blockages in carotid arteries along the sides of the neck, and nearly one-third of patients who suffer strokes have earlier warning signs. Many symptoms last only a few minutes.
