We offer in office ultrasound at our Webster location. Ultrasound is used to locate and identify any blockages and abnormalities, detect blood clots (DVT), evaluate grafts or bypass blood vessels, determine the source and severity of varicose veins and more. Ultrasound is also used to assist in procedures. A venous ultrasound of the upper or lower extremities provides pictures of the veins and the blood flow within the veins of the arms or legs. An arterial ultrasound of the upper or lower extremities provides pictures of the arteries and the blood flow within the arteries of the arms or legs. A Doppler ultrasound study will also be a part of the venous or arterial ultrasound examination. Doppler ultrasound evaluates the speed and direction of blood as it flows through an artery or vein of the arm or leg.
The exam will be performed by a sonographer, a technologist who is specially trained in ultrasound.
