Vascular Ultrasound at Medical City Plano

Medical City Plano offers vascular ultrasound testing, which uses high-frequency sound waves to study the inside of your body. It helps your physician examine the blood circulation in your arms and legs. It can help evaluate blood flow in the arteries, blood flow to a newly transplanted organ, and blood flow that indicates narrowed areas of the arteries.

There are no special preparations before the test. You will lie down and a technician will spread gel on the area to be studied. The technician will then press a transducer along your skin, which will send images to a monitor for your physician to study. The procedure is not painful, though you may feel pressure at the site of the transducer. After the test, you can go home and resume regular activities.
