Medical Specialty:
Cardiovascular / Pulmonary

Sample Name: Ultrasound - Carotid - 2


Description: Bilateral carotid ultrasound to evaluate pain.
(Medical Transcription Sample Report)


EXAM: Ultrasound carotid, bilateral.

REASON FOR EXAMINATION: Pain.

COMPARISON: None.

FINDINGS: Bilateral common carotid arteries/branches demonstrate minimal, predominantly noncalcified plaquing with mild calcific plaquing in the left internal carotid artery. There are no different colors or spectral Doppler waveform abnormalities.

PARAMETRIC DATA: Right CCA PSV 0.72 m/s. Right ICA PSV is 0.595 m/s. Right ICA EDV 0.188 m/s. Right vertebral 0.517 m/s. Right IC/CC is 0.826. Left CCA PSV 0.571 m/s, left ICA PSV 0.598 m/s. Left ICA EDV 0.192 m/s. Left vertebral 0.551 m/s. Left IC/CC is 1.047.

IMPRESSION:
1. No evidence for clinically significant stenosis.
2. Minimal, predominantly soft plaquing.
