What are the diagnostic services for vascular conditions?

If you have a vascular condition, such as peripheral arterial disease (PAD), stroke, or venous insufficiency, our team uses vascular diagnostic imaging services to evaluate your condition. The type of imaging test you require depends on your symptoms, but may include:

A physical examination

First and foremost, our experts complete a detailed physical examination and review your medical history as part of diagnostic services for vascular conditions. This process helps your vascular specialist determine which diagnostic test is appropriate for you.

Vascular ultrasound imaging

State-of-the-art, noninvasive ultrasound imaging is a vascular diagnostic test that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce detailed images of blood flowing through blood vessels. This imaging technique allows our team to diagnose medical conditions that can be dangerous if not treated promptly — such as a stroke, peripheral arterial disease, or a deep vein thrombosis.

Ankle-brachial index test

The ankle brachial index test is commonly used to diagnose PAD. During this diagnostic test, your vascular physician uses an ultrasound device and blood pressure cuff to measure blood pressure and flow in your ankle versus your arm.   

What should I expect after diagnostic testing?

After your diagnostic tests are complete, your doctor will evaluate the vascular condition you have and determine if you are at risk for disease.
