Our laboratory meets the highest standards and is accredited by ICAVL, a national vascular lab accreditation organization.
Our full range of tests
- Stroke risk assessment. Our Carotid Doppler (NICS) test checks for plaque formations in the carotid arteries, which supply blood to the brain and face.
- Testing for aneurysms, blockages. Abdominal Duplex Exams (aorta, aorta-iliac duplex, SMA/celiac and renal artery doppler) check for aneurysms, or weak spots, as well as blood clots or plaque formations in the aorta and branching arteries that supply blood through the torso to the lower body, including the kidneys.
- Circulation testing. Arterial Physiologic Exams check circulation in legs and feet, and less commonly in arms and hands.
- Testing for clots in veins. Venous Duplex Exams check for blood clots in veins in legs or arms. You’ll need to remove clothing from affected areas.
We offer 17 exams in all. Our other services include Arterial Duplex Exams, to monitor patients who have undergone procedures such as angioplasty; and Dialysis Access Exams, to diagnose problems impeding kidney dialysis.
Our state-of-the-art sonar equipment uses sound waves to create images of the veins and arteries inside the body. This technology lets us see plaque formations, blood clots and other vascular abnormalities — quickly and painlessly.
If we notice anything abnormal during any exam, your doctor will be notified immediately so you can get the treatment you need as soon as possible. Otherwise we explain results, and answer any questions, during the exam.
