VASCULAR ULTRASOUND

INTRODUCTION

VASCULAR ULTRASOUND

Vascular ultrasound uses sound waves to evaluate the body’s circulatory system and help identify blockages and detect blood clots.

 

A Doppler ultrasound study – a technique that evaluates blood flow through a blood vessel – is usually part of this exam.

 

Ultrasound does not use ionizing radiation, has no known harmful effects, and provides a clear picture of soft tissues that don’t show up well on x-ray images.

PREPARATION

Requires no special preparation.
