Diagnostic Vascular Ultrasounds and Quality of Life
At RIA Endovascular we perform diagnostic vascular ultrasounds that are a key component in improving your quality of life. Learn more about how we can help you.
A vascular ultrasound will help monitor the blood flow to organs and tissues throughout the body. You may need this exam to locate and identify blockages that decrease normal blood flow. The ultrasound may also be used to check the valves in your lower extremity veins. Symptoms such as swelling, pain, non-healing wounds and discoloration are just a few signs of the possible need for a vascular ultrasound. We think it is important for our patients to know we can meet all of your peripheral vascular needs in one place. Your ultrasound exam, consult and procedure can all be done at our convenient outpatient clinic.
Easy parking and check-in is an added plus to the care you will receive at RIA Endovascular. At RIA Endovascular our sonographers–another word for ultrasound technologists–are specially trained in vascular ultrasound. They are all certified as Registered Vascular Technologists (RVT) with the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography (ARDMS). Our vascular laboratory also maintains accreditation with the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC) in peripheral venous testing. We frequently complete quality assurance reviews to ensure the highest standards in vascular ultrasound.
