Ankle-brachial index (ABI)
The ankle-brachial index (ABI) is a measurement that is useful to your physician in evaluating the circulation in your legs. The Ultrasound technologist will measure your blood pressure in your ankle and in your arm using a blood pressure cuff and an ultrasound probe. The blood pressures in your ankle and arm should be about equal. But if your ankle pressures are lower than your arm pressures, your leg arteries are probably narrowed.
Duplex Ultrasound (US)
Duplex Ultrasound (US)- Ultrasound to evaluate blood flow of the arteries and or veins in the arms and legs.
Carotid Ultrasound imaging
Carotid Ultrasound imaging – ultrasound of the carotid arteries to identify or rule out carotid artery disease.
Renal Ultrasound imaging
Renal Ultrasound imaging – ultrasound of the arteries to the kidney to evaluate if there are significant blockages in those arteries that could cause kidney failure or severe hypertension.
Abdominal Ultrasound imaging
Abdominal Ultrasound imaging- for identification and evaluation of aneurysmal disease of the aorta and its branches.
Computed Tomography Angiography (CTA)
Computed Tomography Angiography (CTA) -CTA is a non-invasive, advanced imaging study that provides detailed information about the blood vessels within our bodies. To visualize vascular disease in three dimensions.
