Ultrasound
Carotid ultrasound

This technology uses sounds waves to assess blood flow within the carotid artery, a major artery in the neck that supplies blood to the brain.

Ankle brachial index (ABI)

This test is used to predict the severity of peripheral arterial disease, which is a narrowing, blockage, or hardening of the arteries, by comparing blood pressure in your arms to your lower legs.

Arterial Doppler evaluation

This technology identifies arterial blockages by assessing blood flow within the legs.

Transcranial Doppler evaluation

This technology assesses the blood flow through the blood vessels in the brain. This helps to diagnose subarachnoid hemorrhage, or bleeding from a ruptured cerebral aneurysm or bulging blood vessel.

Abdominal arterial evaluation

This type of imaging helps to distinguish between a narrowing, constriction, or blockage of a blood vessel. This test helps a physician determine the appropriate treatment (angioplasty, stent placement, etc.), diagnose aneurysms, and monitor patients after treatment is given.

Venous evaluation

This technology uses sound waves to assess blood flow to identify narrowing, constriction, blockage, and blood clots, as well as evaluate varicose veins.

Renal artery evaluation

This test assesses the narrowing of the renal artery, which supplies most of the blood flow to the kidneys.

A-V fistula evaluation for hemodialysis

This evaluation assists the vascular surgeon in determining the appropriate site to insert a fistula, a connection of two vessels that are usually independent, for therapeutic reasons such as dialysis.
