As part of our comprehensive range of vascular services, we are pleased to be able to offer the convenience of on-site specialist vascular ultrasound and diagnostic services.
A vascular ultrasound is type of medical imaging that uses high-frequency sound waves to examine the blood vessels. It not only provides images of the blood vessels, but it also enables measurement of blood flow as well. It can be used to study most arteries and veins in the body, and can detect problems such as blood clots, plaque, aneurysms and damaged valves.
It is non-invasive, extremely safe, usually painless and does not use radiation or contrast dyes. There are no needles or injections, and usually minimal preparation. You can drive to and from the appointment.
