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.
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:
Abdominal Aortic Ultrasound
Carotid Duplex Ultrasound
Peripheral Arterial Ultrasound
