Vascular Ultrasound Lab

Echocardiography

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:

Carotid Doppler:

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.

Renal Doppler:

We look for blockages in the renal arteries and kidneys.
