Ultrasound Department

The only accredited vascular practice in the region with the highest level of quality vascular testing, ultrasound technologists, and care for our patients.

Our Ultrasound Department

As vascular specialists, we rely on diagnostic ultrasound to produce images of blood flow within the arteries and veins.  A vascular ultrasound examination is non-invasive and provides our doctors with useful information when diagnosing a range of vascular diseases such as Deep Vein Thrombosis, Peripheral Arterial Disease, Carotid Artery Disease, Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm and Varicose Veins.

It is particularly important for our patients to understand that there are many factors that contribute to a diagnosis when utilizing a vascular ultrasound examination.  For example, the skill of the ultrasound technologist performing the examination, the equipment, and the knowledge and experience of the physician interpreting the results all determine the quality of the exam.  Poor quality assurance measures can lead to misdiagnosis and unnecessary tests or surgery.
