The non-invasive Vascular Laboratory at East Orange General Hospital is committed to providing the highest level of care to our patients utilizing state-of-the-art digital technology for the diagnosis of cardiovascular disease.

The Vascular Laboratory offers comprehensive, non-invasive ultrasonic blood flow evaluation of the legs, arms, and neck using the latest advances in ultrasound technology. All examinations are performed by registered and experienced Vascular Technologists who work with highly-trained Vascular Surgeons to provide accurate diagnostic information that assists the referring doctor in treating patients with disorders of the circulatory system.

A full range of non-invasive tests are available at our Vascular Laboratory including tests for:

  • Cerebrovascular Testing: An ultrasound probe is placed on the surface of the neck to evaluate blood flow in the carotid arteries that provide circulation to the brain.
  • Arterial Testing: Arteries in the arms and legs are evaluated for reduced blood flow or blockage by the placement of a series of blood pressure cuffs at different levels and using sound wave (Doppler) evaluation of the arteries.
  • Venous Testing: The veins of the arms and legs are scanned by placing an ultrasound probe on the surface of the skin and recording pictures of the vein to look for blockages.
  • Renal (Kidney) Artery Testing: Blood flow to the kidneys is evaluated by placing a small ultrasound transducer on the belly in several different locations. This examination is performed after 4-6 hours of not eating or drinking.
