The heart is evaluated with duplex/color. The scan evaluates the overall function of the heart, wall thickness, chamber sizes, all four valves, murmurs, and can rule out Pulmonary Effusion.
The carotid arteries are evaluated using duplex / color ultrasound. Disease in the internal carotid artery is reported in percent stenosis.Indications:
The arterial system of the lower extremities is evaluated by duplex/color scanning to determine the presence and severity of flow reducing lesions. An ankle-brachial index is taken to provide the overall level of ischemia. The degree of ischemia is reported as normal, mild, moderate, or severe. In the upper extremities a pressure drop from side to side can be identified as well as occlusions or flow reducing lesions.Indications:
The deep and superficial veins are evaluated using duplex/color ultrasound to determine the presence or absence of thrombus and valvular incompetence. The presence of deep vein thrombosis is reported as acute, chronic or age-indeterminate. Valves are reported as being incompetent.Indications:
Duplex/color ultrasound is utilized to evaluate the renal arteries for the presence of significant stenosis. An abnormal renal artery scan would be reported as having greater than 60 percent stenosis.Indications:
The celiac, superior mesenteric and inferior mesenteric arteries are evaluated using duplex/color ultrasound to determine the presence of significant stenosis. An abnormal scan is reported as sat least one of the above arteries having a greater than 70 percent stenosis.Indications:
The abdominal aorta is scanned using duplex/color ultrasound to identify the presence and location (infrarenal) of an aneurysm. Any dilatation of the aorta above 3 cm would be reported as abnormal. The presence of flow reducing lesions can also be identified.
