Non-Invasive Laboratory

Our non-invasive laboratory uses an array of equipment, including state-of-the-art ultrasound technology, to evaluate your vasculature. The non-invasive tests are integral to diagnosing, monitoring, and planning your treatment. Explore the resources* linked below to learn about some of the tests you can expect in our lab and some of the conditions we treat.

Duplex Ultrasound
Ultrasound studies are entirely non-invasive and radiation-free.  They allow our team to assess the health of your veins and arteries.
At Bay Area Vein and Vascular, the more commonly performed studies and some associated conditions include:

Ankle-Brachial Index (ABI)
The ankle-brachial index is as simple as it gets, comparing the blood pressures in your arms to those in your legs. The ABI is a tool to assess for peripheral arterial disease (PAD), which affects circulation in the legs.
To learn more about the ABI click HERE.

Depicted is a color-mode ultrasound scan of the carotid artery and the doppler waveforms of the blood flow.

Electrocardiography (ECG/EKG)
An EKG is a tracing of the electrical activity of your heart.  It provides basic information about the condition of the heart.
