Non-invasive tests like ABI & segmental pressures are time-tested screening tests for peripheral arterial disease (PAD). However, these tests many times come back false negative even though the patient actually has the disease. For this reason, arterial ultrasounds are often used to supplement information achieved from said tests. Similarly, venous-ultrasounds are the gold standard for diagnosing venous reflux, and deep venous thrombosis.
Our non-invasive vascular lab is located in the Boston Vein Care office, and it provides a comprehensive list of diagnostic tests. Our services are designed with both the patient’s comfort and referring physician’s convenience in mind. A report is generated and faxed to the referring provider. A few of the most commonly performed tests are listed below.
Our Wellesley, MA office caters to vascular lab needs for Boston MA patients, whereas our Chelmsford office takes pride in providing vascular lab needs for Lowell MA, Chelmsford MA and surrounding towns.
First in line as a basic screening test for PAD.
Used in patients with hardened arteries in diabetic and/or elderly patients.
To help localize blockage in arterial segments.
Usually done in conjunction with ABI & TBI to increase the accuracy.
Carotid artery stenosis is one of the most important causes of mini-strokes (TIA) and full-blown strokes (CVA). Additionally, the inner wall thickness of the carotid artery (carotid intima-media thickness) is used as a cardiovascular screening test and sometimes can be used risk stratify and adjust the cardiovascular risk factors in an attempt to prevent heart attacks, stroke and amputations.
