What is a Vascular Ultrasound?
Vascular ultrasound can be defined as a procedure that utilizes sound waves to produce vascular images that offer a comprehensive evaluation of the health status of your circulatory system. It is a non-invasive procedure that does not require incisions or any other surgical methods and is typically carried out in an instant and hassle-free manner.
Blockages in your blood vessels can be easily detected through a vascular ultrasound, including blood clots, which are a leading cause of heart attack or stroke.
Our experts may also recommend our vascular ultrasound service to you for:
- Evaluation of varicose veins
- Detection of enlarged arteries
