Why do we do Vascular Testing?
As you get older the arterial walls become weaker and can be damaged. As they are damaged they can become inflamed and thickened causing an obstruction of blood flow. Vascular health screenings improves assessment of cardiovascular risk, particularly in individuals who smoke and/or have a family history of heart disease, cholesterol disorders, high blood pressure, and/or diabetes.
Non-invasive Cardiovascular Testing
A small ultrasound microphone called a Doppler is held over the vein to determine if a blood clot is present.
The test combines a Doppler microphone device with an image of the vessel on a TV-like screen. It is performed to look directly at the arteries for plaque build-up and blockage. The test takes 15-20 minutes and helps to determine the risk of a stroke or heart attack in the future.
