Upper Extremity Arterial Doppler is used for the diagnosis of atherosclerotic disease that occurs with:
- atherosclerotic plaque with haemodynamic impact (stenosis)
The anatomical and flowmeter data collected through this examination allow the monitoring of the disease, the effectiveness of the therapy and the outcome of the surgery over time.

Upper Extremity Arterial Doppler has no risks.
The execution of this exam does not include preparation rules.
