Vascular Ultrasound

Vascular ultrasound is a noninvasive (does not use needles, dyes, radiation or anesthesia) procedure that examines blood circulation in your arms and legs. During a vascular ultrasound, sound waves are transmitted through the tissues of the area being examined. As the sound waves bounce off of tissues, the computer uses them to create an image of the area, allowing physicians to diagnose certain conditions.

Indiana University Health Radiology physicians have extensive experience with vascular ultrasound, offering expert interpretation of ultrasound images.

Our vascular ultrasound technologists are highly skilled in locating problems you may have in your circulatory system including:

  • Stenosis. A stenois is the narrowing of blood vessels.
  • Deep vein thrombosis. These are clots in blood vessels deep within the body.
  • Aneurysm. An aneurysm is a bulge in an artery.

Our radiologists specialize in diagnosing cardiovascular disorders using vascular ultrasound. The results of a vascular ultrasound help your physician create an effective treatment for your circulatory system condition.

When you visit IU Health Radiology you receive patient- and family-centered care. We provide diagnostic solutions that are personalized to fit your needs. Though ultrasound is painless, you may feel some discomfort as our technologist explores swollen or tender parts of your body. We strive to make you as comfortable as possible. Your needs and preferences are important to us as we perform your vascular ultrasound scan.
