Diagnosing Vascular Disease

Depending on your symptoms we have an array of diagnostic tests to help identify your condition. These tests offer critical information in deciding the next steps for proper treatment.

  • An angiogram is an X-ray procedure, typically performed while you are sedated, that can be both diagnostic and therapeutic.
  • It detects blockages using X-rays taken during the injection of a contrast agent.
  • The procedure provides information that helps your vascular surgeon determine your best treatment options.
  • ABI's are non-invasive tests that use inflatable cuffs (blood pressure cuffs) to gauge your blood flow and measure blood pressure in the arteries at various locations on the upper and lower leg, foot, and toes.
  • Carotid Duplex are non-invasive tests used to see and measure the rate at which blood flows through your carotid arteries and look for possible blockages utilizing ultrasound technology.
  • CTA and MRA tests are non-invasive, advanced imaging studies utilizing a contrast agent that provides detailed information about the blood vessels within our bodies.
  • These tests allow your vascular surgeon to better visualize the potential vascular disease and see the extent of a disease process, pinpoint location of a condition, or potential narrowing of a vessel.
  • Duplex ultrasound is a non-invasive evaluation of blood flow through your arteries and veins.
