A carotid ultrasound is a safe, painless procedure that uses sound waves to examine the structure and function of the carotid arteries in your neck. This procedure usually takes about 30 to 45 minutes. There is no special preparation for this test.
Your two carotid arteries are located on each side of your neck. Carotid arteries deliver blood from your heart to your brain. A carotid ultrasound is usually used to test for blocked or narrow carotid arteries, which can indicate an increased risk of stroke.
