Vascular studies are tests that check the blood flow in your arteries and veins. These tests are noninvasive. This means they don’t use any needles. They include:
Carotid, Arm, and Leg Arterial and Venous Studies, Carotid Ultrasound, Venous Doppler Studies, Arterial Doppler Studies
Vascular studies use high-frequency sound waves (ultrasound) to measure the amount of blood flow in your blood vessels. A small handheld probe (transducer) is pressed against your skin. The sound waves move through your skin and other body tissues to the blood vessels. The sound waves echo off of the blood cells. These echoes are then sent to a computer and seen on a screen as images or video.
Dr. Reddy can access the need for a vascular study and if results show evidence of changes or blockages, then we will have the information necessary to send you to an appropriate specialists.
These 'preventative' measures are key in identifying problems early on that if not otherwise addressed, could lead to a catastrophic event such as a severe stroke or heart attack.
