How is carotid artery disease diagnosed?

Carotid artery disease most often occurs at an older age, although it varies from patient to patient. This condition occurs when fats clog the carotid artery’s openings, which are part of a critical blood-carrying network. As a result, the clogs prevent vital oxygen from reaching certain body parts and circulating correctly.

With proactive treatment programs, carotid artery disease life expectancy can significantly increase. However, patients with this condition have a substantially higher risk of stroke, so it’s essential to address the issue as early as possible with experienced specialists. You can consult with our cardiology team about what steps are right for your situation.

To diagnose a carotid artery blockage, doctors use a noninvasive carotid ultrasound test. Using high-frequency sound waves, the team will look for blood clots and plaques that compromise blood flow.
