Vascular Ultrasound Lab
Our Vascular Lab is designed for the examination of vessels (arteries and veins) using ultrasound equipment. Ultrasound utilizes sound waves and a computer to visualize the arteries and veins in different parts of the body. The procedure is safe and painless.
Common Vascular Studies performed are:
We look at the vessels supplying blood to the brain
Upper Extremity Arterial Doppler:
We look at the blood flow and any narrowing vessels in the arms.
Lower Extremity Arterial Doppler:
We look for peripheral vascular disease, which narrows the vessels in the legs.
Upper and Lower Extremity Venous Doppler:
We look for blood clots and/or any problems with veins.
Abdominal Aortic Doppler:
We look for aneurysms and blockages in the abdominal aorta.
We look for blockages in the renal arteries and kidneys.
