Vascular Ultrasound

The Vascular Ultrasound Laboratory provides studies of the blood flow through the arteries and veins to diagnose blockages that may lead to a stroke or pulmonary embolism. Commonly known as Doppler or duplex studies, vascular ultrasound tests use high-pitched sound waves to reflect off the blood vessels and create pictures of the blood moving through the veins and arteries. These images give your doctor information on the anatomy of your arteries and veins and can indicate possible blockages and clots.
