Vascular Ultrasound

What is a vascular ultrasound?

An ultrasound, also called sonography, allows us to obtain images of the body’s internal organs, tissues and blood flow.

Vascular ultrasound provides pictures of the body's veins and arteries.

During an ultrasound a small device called a transducer is held against the body. The transducer sends ultrasound waves that reflect off the various parts of the blood vessels.

The reflections are converted into moving images. These images are displayed on a screen and can be recorded onto disk.

Ultrasound imaging is a noninvasive medical test that helps physicians diagnose and treat medical conditions.
