Hyderabad Vascular center has a dedicated ultrasound service that provides a broad range of non-invasive vascular diagnostic services, using ultrasound imaging, Doppler blood flow evaluation and physiologic testing. This allows for the assessment, diagnosis and management of suspected vascular disorders.
we use state of the art equipment and technology. Our team of dedicated specialists are recognised in the area of vascular testing and are able to provide excellence in vascular ultrasound with the highest levels of testing accuracy and reliability, while maintaining patient comfort and care.
- Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) – Lower and Upper limb
- Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) – Lower and Upper limb
- Cerebrovascular Disease (including Carotid duplex and Transcranial Doppler)
- Aortic Aneurysms
- Renal Artery Disease
- Mesenteric Arterial Disease
- Endoluminal and Bypass graft surveillance
- Thoracic Outlet Syndrome
- Chronic Venous Disease and Varicose Veins
We perform the following tests:
The ankle-brachial index (ABI) is a test that uses inflatable pressure cuffs to assess blood flow in the legs and arms.
What to Expect
A vascular technologist (VT) will measure the blood pressure in your arm and ankles using a blood pressure cuff. The VT will compare the blood pressure from your ankles and your arm to form an ABI ratio, which is a predictor of how the circulation in your legs is performing.
The duplex ultrasound evaluates the blood flow through your arteries and veins. There are several types of ultrasound tests:
Carotid ultrasound – ultrasound of the carotid arteries in the neck to identify or rule out blockages that can lead to a stroke
Renal ultrasound – ultrasound of the blood flow to the kidney to evaluate if there are significant blockages to the kidneys.
Abdominal ultrasound – ultrasound of the abdomen for identification and evaluation of aneurysmal disease of the aorta and its branches.
Mesenteric ultrasound – ultrasound of the mesenteric arteries to evaluate blockages that may be contributing to abdominal pain or ischemia of the intestines.
What to Expect
A registered Radiologist will place a clear gel on the skin and use an ultrasound scanning probe to obtain images of your arteries and veins.
Before the Test
Confirm specific medication and dietary restrictions at the time of appointment.
Wear loose, comfortable clothing.
There are usually no side effects or complications associated with ABI and duplex ultrasound examinations.
The HVC Noninvasive Vascular Laboratory is a leader in extracranial cerebrovascular testing, peripheral venous, peripheral arterial, and visceral vascular testing.
