Abstract: Background: Doppler Ultrasonic imaging provides a non-invasive assessment of the arterial and venous circulation in the lower limb and is accepted as a valuable diagnostic technique. AIM: To determine the indications for Doppler imaging in the extremities in our institution and describe the main findings. METHOD: This a retrospective study of 126 patients that had lower limb doppler interrogation for various indications in Jos university Teaching Hospital Radiology Department over a one year period(February 2012-January 2013.The results were retrieved from departmental archive. The age, sex, indications and findings were obtained and analysed. RESULTS: A total of 126 patients were scanned in which 67 were females and 59 were males. There are more patients with DVT alone (56.3%) compared to the other indications, and it was more females compared to males (38:33). PVD constitute 19.8% of the total indications, which are more in males. Peripheral vascular disease is the commonest positive findings. It increases with age. A good relationship between indications and findings were noted, which was significant, p of 0.003. CONCLUSION: Ultrasonic scanning is now established as a valuable non-invasive method for investigating lower-limb vascular diseases.
