Vascular Ultrasound

What is vascular ultrasound?

Vascular ultrasounds provide pictures of the body's veins and arteries.

Vascular ultrasound is performed to:

  • help monitor the blood flow to organs and tissues throughout the body.
  • locate and identify blockages (stenosis) and abnormalities like plaque or emboli and help plan for their effective treatment.
  • detect blood clots (deep venous thrombosis (DVT) in the legs or arms.
  • determine whether a patient is a good candidate for a procedure such as angioplasty.
  • evaluate the success of procedures that graft or bypass blood vessels.
  • determine if there is an enlarged artery (aneurysm).
  • determine the source and severity of varicose veins.

These studies are offered in-house by registered vascular sonographer Blair Jonak, BS, RT (R), RDMS, RVT.
