Carotid Artery Disease : Diagnosis

How is carotid artery disease diagnosed?

The diagnosis of carotid artery disease is usually based on the performance of an ultrasound study of the neck arteries (a carotid artery duplex scan). Alternatively, the artery can be visualized by a magnetic resonance angiogram (MRA) or standard angiogram.
