Vascular Laboratory - Exams at a Vascular Laboratory



Modern medicine has assisted health care professionals in providing excellent diagnostics to the public. The vascular laboratory is a critical element in the health care system that generates valuable data for physicians and patients.

 

What Is a Vascular Laboratory?

In a vascular laboratory, technicians can use different methods to study the blood vessels and other organs involved in circulation. These tests are non-invasive and include both ultrasound and pulse volume recordings, among other exams.

Many physicians refer patients to a vascular laboratory after a physical examination that suggests the possibility of vascular disease. The results can give professional health care providers a better idea of how to proceed with intervention or treatment.

 

What Kind of Tests Do They Perform?

• Ultrasound Tests: These include focused ultrasound tests on carotid arteries, renal arteries and others.

• Pulse Volume Recording: Besides exams on the upper and lower extremities in general, vascular laboratories perform ankle-brachial index (ABI) exams, which is a critical indicator of vascular disease.

• Treadmill Testing

• Venous Ultrasound and Venous Reflux

• Vein and Artery Mapping

• Graft Surveillance

Vascular Laboratories remain busy these days due to the high quality of their results. Physicians often rely on them to strengthen their diagnoses
