Vascular Screening/Vascular Studies
Carotid ultrasound is a safe, painless procedure that uses sound waves to examine the structure and function of the carotid arteries in the neck.
Peripheral Arterial Disease & Aneurysm Screening
Lower extremity arterial ultrasound is a safe and painless way of visualizing the arteries of the legs. It can detect the presence and location of peripheral arterial disease (PAD), narrowing of the arteries supplying the legs. It uses a small hand-held device called a transducer to transmit and receive sound waves. Special equipment changes the sound waves into images that are seen on a monitor. This is the same technology used to image babies in utero (sonogram).
An echocardiogram, sometimes called an “echo,” is an imaging test that uses the echoes of sound waves that are bounced off your heart to create a moving picture of your moving heart, its muscles, and valves. It shows how well your heart is working, as well as how large your heart is.
