24 Hour Holter Monitor
A Holter ECG is a continuous electrocardiogram taken while you are performing your normal daily activities. It is a painless, diagnostic procedure.
Abdominal Aortic Ultrasound
An ultrasound scan of your abdominal aorta is performed to detect aneurysms (weakening and stretching of the walls of the aorta).
Peripheral Arterial Ultrasound
The purpose of a lower extremity arterial evaluation is to detect the presence, severity and location of atherosclerosis (narrowing of the arteries caused by plaque) in your legs. Some of the indications for a lower extremity arterial evaluation include leg pain while walking (claudication), leg pain at rest, leg numbness and tingling, or non-healing ulcers or sores of the legs or feet.
Upper or Lower-extremity venous duplex scan
The purpose of a venous duplex scan is to detect the presence of thrombus (blood clot) in your veins. Some indications for a lower-extremity venous scan include warmth, pain and swelling of one or both legs, or ulcers of legs.
Renal Artery Duplex scan
The purpose of a Renal Artery Duplex Scan is to detect the presence of stenosis in the renal arteries. Some indications for a renal artery duplex scan include uncontrolled hypertention.
Carotid-artery duplex scan
The purpose of a carotid-artery duplex scan is to detect the presence of atherosclerosis (narrowing caused by plaque) in your carotid arteries, which are the arteries in your neck that supply blood flow to your brain. Some indications for a carotid artery duplex scan include weakness, paralysis or dysfunction of limbs, change in speech, visual disturbances, numbness or tingling in limbs, and balance disturbances.
An echocardiogram uses high frequency sound waves (ultrasound) to create a moving picture of your heart as it works. Depending the type of test you have, your doctor can learn about the size, shape and movement of your heart muscle. An echocardiogram also shows how the heart valves are working and how blood flows through your heart, giving your doctor valuable information about your arteries.
