Vascular mapping is a medical procedure that involves creating a three-dimensional image of the blood vessels in a particular area of the body. This image can then be used to plan and guide procedures such as angioplasty or bypass surgery.
Vascular Ultrasound is carried out using an ultrasound probe, which uses ultrasound (Doppler) technologies to see or “map” all blood vessels that run beneath the skin, on the legs or arms. It lets the doctor assess the size, depth, and blood flow through these veins and helps in a more precise treatment plan.
It takes between 30-90 minutes to complete the procedure. The ultrasound technician needs access to your legs, starting from your groin to your ankle or your arms from your neck to the wrist. The clothing can be easily removed from the top of your waist (arm imaging) or the waist to the core (leg imaging).
Our office provides a comprehensive range of diagnostic procedures to evaluate and monitor various disorders, including Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD), Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI), Carotid Disease, and Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA). Some of the specific studies we perform include Ankle-Brachial Index (ABI), segmental studies, arterial and venous Doppler/Duplex ultrasound of the upper and lower extremities. Additionally, we offer vein mapping for arteriovenous fistulas (AVF) and arteriovenous grafts (AVG) for dialysis patients. Lastly, we have the expertise to perform diagnostic arteriograms when necessary.
