Most importantly, all of our vascular ultrasound tests are interpreted by a RPVI-certified vascular surgeon who has received special training to understand the “physics” of blood flow and who can identify subtle problems that are often missed by traditionally-trained hospital radiologists.
If a problem is found, an interim report will be phoned or faxed to the referring doctor. A full written report with drawings and/or hard-copy prints will usually be mailed within 24 hours. These tests are almost always covered by insurance if ordered by either your doctor or the vascular surgeon.
Like many people today, you may want to take your health into your own hands. If you know that you have certain risk factors for vascular disease, such as being over 55, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or cigarette smoking, you may be concerned about having a stroke or dying of a ruptured aneurysm.
At the Institute for Vascular Testing, we offer screening ultrasounds that can put your mind to rest about the above in less than 30 minutes. Insurance generally does not pay for these, but we have made them quite affordable.
The procedures we perform include:
