Carotid Echocardiogram


Carotid echocardiogram is a non-invasive examination without exposure to ionizing radiation. Carotid ultrasound precisely quantifies the combined thickness of the intimal and medial layers of the arterial wall. It is used for identifying and quantifying subclinical vascular disease and for evaluating cardiovascular disease. It is also an important investigation to assess atherosclerosis severity and progression, and can be used to evaluate the therapeutic effect of drug therapy on atherosclerosis progression
