Diagnostic vascular procedures

Diagnostic vascular services include a variety of procedures used to detect blockage or narrowing of the veins and arteries. These procedures provide critical diagnostic information in the evaluation of a broad spectrum of vascular diseases. State-of-the-art color-flow duplex ultrasound as well as computerized continuous wave Doppler equipment is utilized.

Experienced vascular technologists perform these diagnostic procedures, and physicians directly supervise and interpret the examinations. These services include:

  • Carotid duplex screening
  • Venous duplex scanning of upper and lower extremities
  • Arterial bypass graft assessment to monitor patency
  • Hemodialysis access scanning
  • Pre-operative vein mapping
  • Arterial duplex scanning to detect aneurysms, pseudoaneurysms and A-V fistulas
  • Arterial Doppler studies to access arterial insufficiency
  • Embolotherapy
