Vascular Ultrasound

Vascular ultrasound is a noninvasive ultrasound method used to examine the blood circulation in the arms and legs.

Vascular ultrasound can be used to evaluate:

  • The blood flow in the arteries in the neck that supply blood to the brain
  • The blood flow to a newly transplanted organ
  • Blood flow in the arteries to detect the presence, severity and specific location of a narrowed area of the arteries

How does it work?

During a vascular ultrasound, sound waves are transmitted through the tissues of the area being examined. These sound waves reflect off blood cells moving within the blood vessels, allowing the reading physician to calculate their speed. The sound waves are recorded and displayed on a computer screen.


What can I expect after treatment?

There are no special instructions to follow after the test. Patients may go home after the vascular ultrasound.
