Vascular Ultrasound Q&A
What is a vascular ultrasound?
A vascular ultrasound is a simple, non-invasive imaging tool that uses sound waves, also known as sonography, that pass harmlessly through your body and bounce back to create an image.
It’s also worth noting that this technology doesn’t use any radiation, as is the case with X-ray imaging.
Why would I need a vascular ultrasound?
Unfortunately, numerous conditions or habits can compromise this system, making your veins and arteries work harder to deliver blood. It’s impossible to list all of the factors that put your blood vessels at risk, but here are some of the main culprits:
- Lifestyle habits, such as smoking and drinking
- Lack of exercise
- Poor nutrition
- Pre-existing heart diseases
Vascular ultrasounds are an effective way to determine whether your blood vessels are under duress. This test provides vital information about the function of your veins and arteries and is a common test ordered by physicians.
What do I need to do to prepare for a vascular diagnostic ultrasound?
There’s little you need to do to prepare for a vascular ultrasound. When you arrive, you will lie down on our exam table and your technologist will run a transducer over the area of interest.
When do I get results from my vascular ultrasound?
Once your test is over, your ultrasound technologist sends the information to our radiologist for interpretation, and your results are sent to your ordering physician.
