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