The results of your carotid doppler suggest that you have a mild degree of atherosclerosis in your right distal and right proximal internal carotid artery, and moderate degree of atherosclerosis in your right external carotid artery. This does not represent any significant degree of disease or obstruction that would warrant intervention. It is important that you continue a heart healthy lifestyle including low fat, low sodium diet with good blood pressure control and cardiovascular exercise.
