What is a Vascular Ultrasound?
Vascular ultrasound, also known as vein mapping, is a comprehensive diagnostic tool that uses sound waves to render a detailed image of a patient’s circulatory system. By performing an ultrasound scan to get a good view of your blood circulation, your vascular surgeon can provide you with an accurate diagnosis of the cause of your varicose veins.
How Does a Vascular Ultrasound Work?
A vascular ultrasound utilizes high-frequency sound waves and creates detailed images. The sound waves pass through the blood vessels and soft tissues, creating echoes. Computers then turn these echoes into images or videos. This completely non-invasive procedure is not painful and can be done right in the vein center, and is essential for helping the vascular surgeon arrive at the best treatment strategy for your venous insufficiency, which can help greatly with the procedure’s effectiveness.
The Benefits of Diagnostic Ultrasound Vascular Technology
A vascular ultrasound can help determine the arterial health of your lower extremities. This exam will give your medical team the answers they need to move forward with treatment. Not only will your doctors be able to provide you with the most effective course of treatment for your vascular condition, but you can also rest assured they can get right to the source of the issue once they have detected it through vascular ultrasound. This helps your vascular surgeon avoid administering any treatments or surgeries that are not in your best interest or that are unnecessary for your specific condition.
Additionally, a vascular ultrasound can help doctors successfully insert a catheter to remove blockages in the vein, as well as view soft tissues that may not be able to be seen on an x-ray. One of the most advantageous things about vascular ultrasound technology is that it can identify specific blood valves causing varicose veins, as well as detect blood clots with a high level of accuracy, so you can be sure your vascular surgery team knows exactly what needs to be done to provide you with the best care.
