What is doppler ultrasound?

A doppler ultrasound is a diagnostic test which uses high frequency sound waves to evaluate the blood while it flows through blood vessel. This allows doctors to see what’s going on inside your body without X-rays or injections and provides detailed analysis of blood flow through major arteries and veins of arms, leg and neck. Test also reveals the blockages/clots or reduced flow of blood in the major arteries.

It also can reveal blood clots in leg veins (deep vein thrombosis, or DVT) that could break loose and block blood flow to the lungs (pulmonary embolism).

This test has replaced x-ray methods such as angiography, as a method to evaluate blood vessels and blood flow. In general, it allows real-time view of blood flow that cannot be obtained by other methods.

Cardiology Tests

Need for cardiology tests : In diagnosing heart disease, a doctor will first ask you for a description of symptoms and your medical history. Standard medical exam reveals your physical condition. Listening to the heart for swishing or whooshing sounds, collectively known as heart murmurs, may provide important clues about heart trouble. Further cardiology tests are done to find out what is actually happening inside the heart, in case of suspected heart disease.

Cardiology is the study and treatment of disorders of the heart and the blood vessels of the heart. Heart disease relates specifically to the heart, while cardiovascular disease affects the heart, the blood vessels of the heart, or both.

A cardiologist specializes in diagnosing and treating diseases of the cardiovascular system. He will carry out tests and do some procedures to assess the heart condition & also by reviewing a patient’s medical history and carrying out physical examination.

Bone density or bone mineral density (BMD) is the amount of bone mineral in bone tissue. Basically, the amount of bone tissue in any given volume of bone is bone density. Bone mineral density indirectly indicates osteoporosis and risk of a fracture. Osteoporosis is a disease that causes bones to become increasingly fragile and more likely and easier to break. Poor bone density can be associated with higher probability of bone fracture. A common health problem among the elderly, especially in women, is fractures of the pelvis and legs due to falls.

What is Osteoporosis?

Osteoporosis is a disease in which there is greater chance of broken bones due to decreased bone strength. It is very common among the elderly. It occurs in 55% of those aged 50 and above. The bones that usually break are the back bones, forearm and hip bones. In osteoporosis, there are no defining symptoms that occur before the bone breaks. The extreme weakening of the bones may result in a break due to minor stress or even spontaneously. This results in chronic pain and inability to carry out many previously normal activities. In women, the chances of developing an osteoporosis-related hip fracture is equal to the combined risk of developing breast cancer, uterine cancer and ovarian cancer. By age 90, one-third of all women and 17% of men have had a hip fracture. Osteoporosis treatment involves medications and lifestyle changes.
