Vascular Ultrasound

Vascular ultrasound is a non-invasive ultrasound (also called a duplex) used to examine the circulation in the blood vessels and help evaluate for peripheral vascular disease of the veins and arteries. High frequency sound waves and doppler ultrasound is the technique used to assess blood flow.

What to Expect

A registered vascular sonographer applies wam gel to the skin. Using a handheld device called a transducer, the sonographer moves the transducer along the path of the blood vessel to obtain the necessary images.

Prepare for Your Appointment

Please wear comfortable loose fitting clothing. No other preparation is necessary for your ultrasound.
