Eechocardiography and Ultrasound for Headaches

Echocardiography is a specialized ultrasound technique specifically used to diagnose the heart. All of the major structures of the heart can be observed in detail within just a few seconds. This helps uncover issues with blood flow and heart structure that can cause chronic headache pain among residents of Miami and South Florida.

An echocardiogram test provides insight into the overall function of your heart, including its walls, chambers, vital arteries, and other structures. It is often suggested as a diagnostic tool for those who are already known to suffer from high blood pressure or other cardiovascular complications.

Extracranial Carotid Doppler Ultrasound

Carotid Doppler is the name given to the advanced sound-based test used to diagnose the carotid artery. This artery is located in the neck and helps provide the brain’s blood supply. The external carotid artery, by contrast, supplies blood to the face, scalp, and neck.

Narrowing or blockage of the carotid artery can lead to a variety of headache symptoms. Pain may be intermittent or it may be persistent and grow worse over time. Issues such as cholesterol make it more likely that the carotid artery is not functioning to the fullest.

Transcranial Doppler (TCD) Ultrasound

Many of the most severe and critical headache disorders begin with problems in the head and brain. With the transcranial Doppler, doctors can measure the flow and velocity of blood in the vital blood vessels within the brain. Damage to these vessels can lead to severe headaches and stroke.
