Premier Vascular Ultrasound Laboratory
The Premier Vascular & Vein Center has the largest on-site vascular ultrasound laboratory in the area. Our team of Registered Vascular Technologists are able to perform any vascular ultrasound procedure to diagnose and treat Vascular and Vein patients as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Vascular ultrasound is a safe, non-invasive way to examine the circulation of blood flow through an artery or vein in almost any part of the body, including the blood vessels found in the neck, abdominal area, and in the upper and lower extremities.
An important part of the diagnostic process, vascular imaging can identify blood clots, examine blockage or narrowing in the arteries and veins, and determine the location and severity.
What To Expect During a Vascular Ultrasound
Your care team will give you instructions to prepare for your Vascular Ultrasound that are specific to the type of exam you will be undergoing. Little to no special preparation is required for vascular ultrasound, however, you may want to wear comfortable and loose-fitting clothing on the day of your examination. Once in the ultrasound room, you will have to lie down on a table while the technologist prepares for your examination. Depending on the area to be examined, you may be asked to lie in different positions or disrobe. You may feel some pressure as the wand moves over your body, but there is no serious discomfort throughout the procedure.
