Question:Hi.. I am on my 32nd week. I had a doppler yesterday. What is UA in doppler scan and my doctor has mentioned in my old doppler scan it needs to be below 3. But in yesterday's doppler it's exactly 3. What does it mean? Is it okay or of any problem? Please reply.
Answer: A Doppler ultrasound can estimate how fast blood flows by measuring the rate of change in its pitch (frequency). During a Doppler ultrasound, a technician trained in ultrasound imaging (sonographer) presses a small hand-held device (transducer), about the size of a bar of soap, against your skin over the area of your body being examined, moving from one area to another as necessary. This test may be done as an alternative to more-invasive procedures, such as angiography, which involves injecting dye into the blood vessels so that they show up clearly on X-ray images. A Doppler ultrasound test may also help your doctor check for injuries to your arteries or to monitor certain treatments to your veins and arteries.
