Metro Central Ultrasound is pleased to offer a number of safe and painless vascular ultrasound imaging procedures. Whether your doctor has ordered an ultrasound of the heart or other type of vascular ultrasound, our team is well-equipped to conduct a variety of ultrasound types, including:
If you have a morning appointment for your vascular ultrasound procedure, avoid eating after 8:00 pm the evening before. If your appointment is in the afternoon, do not eat anything for the 7 hours before your exam. Any medication should be taken as you normally would.
A Metro Central Ultrasound technician will conduct an ultrasound exam to create an image of your body’s veins and arteries, or evaluate blood flow through major arteries and veins using a Doppler ultrasound technique. The structures of your blood vessels and the surrounding tissues can be visualized using a small, hand-held device called a transducer, which sends high-frequency sound waves into your body. These sound waves then bounce off of your internal structures and are collected by the transducer. A computer takes this information to create images of your vascular system, and can offer insight into the flow of blood through the vessels.
