Vascular Laboratory (Ultrasound)
We provide a complete range of diagnostic procedures utilizing the most advanced equipment, while providing 24-hour inpatient and outpatient services.
*Our Vascular Laboratory is accredited by the Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Vascular Laboratories (ICAVL) for extracranial carotid artery testing.
These services include:
- *Cerebro vascular (carotid) duplex: Examines arteries feeding blood to the brain for those at risk of stroke.
- Peripheral arterial duplex: Evaluates arterial blood flow to the legs.
- Peripheral venous duplex: Evaluates venoius flow of the arms and legs to rule out blood clots.
- Abdominal duplex exam: Evaluates arteries and veins in the abdomen.
A vascular ultrasound evaluates for the presence of vascular disease. Doppler created ultrasound makes it possible for real time viewing of blood vessels in order to determine if there are areas of dilation, narrowing or blockage. Diagnostic ultrasounds are non invasive, painless and pose no known risk. Highly skilled technologists perform these exams, and a specially trained physician interprets results and generates a report.
We provide comprehensive testing for the evaluation of the carotid, peripheral arterial, peripheral venous and visceral/abdominal vascular systems in a welcoming facility.
