The Noninvasive Vascular Laboratory at Weiss Memorial Hospital employs state-of-the-art noninvasive ultrasound technology to accurately diagnose disorders affecting arteries and veins. Advanced ultrasound imaging and Doppler technology are combined to detect blood vessel wall and flow abnormalities. The Vascular Laboratory is accredited by the Intersocietal Committee for Accreditation of Vascular Laboratories, a nationally recognized benchmark for high-quality and reliable testing procedures.
This advanced noninvasive technology also determines the degree of plaque formation and artery narrowing in the carotid, kidney, abdomen and lower extremity arteries. The Noninvasive Vascular Laboratory also can screen for and measure aneurysms involving the aorta. Our testing provides an objective measure of vascular disease progression.
Patients with vein problems (varicose and spider veins) are studied to identify the location and severity of vein valve dysfunction in order to select the most appropriate treatment.
The Noninvasive Vascular Laboratory is staffed with a highly experienced team dedicated to providing quality care to our patients. The location of the vascular lab to the clinic areas greatly enhances the coordination and expediency of patient care by our vascular specialists.
