The word vascular refers to the circulatory system of the body— the blood vessels which carry oxygenated blood from the heart to the body’s organs (by the arteries) and from the organs back to the heart (by the veins). This type of ultrasound is called Duplex Ultrasound.
The vascular system is the main transport mechanism of the body. The arterial system delivers oxygen and nutrients to the organs to help them replace dead tissues and grow and the venous system is responsible for the removal of waste products from cells. Owing to genetic factors and the Western lifestyle, the function of the vascular system is seriously at risk here.
A computer converts the sound waves into two-dimensional, color moving pictures to analyze and assess if the conventional blood flow is affected by any problem in the blood vessels, such as cholesterol deposits, if there are any other types of blockage in the vessels or if the speed of blood flow is affected due to any blockage.
Why It Is Done
The vascular technology utilizes diagnostic ultrasound to generate images of blood flow within the veins and arteries using high-frequency sound waves to make sure that the circulatory system in our body is functioning well. For example, if your physician wants to make sure that you do not have a blood clot in your leg, he or she might order a vascular ultrasound for that part of the body.
The information obtained through vascular ultrasound examinations is extremely helpful to physicians in diagnosing a variety of conditions related to cardiovascular disease, disorders of the heart and blood vessels. Early detection of life-threatening vascular diseases is possible through the use of non-invasive vascular testing techniques performed within vascular facilities.
Your physician may recommend a duplex ultrasound to help diagnose and examine conditions that affect the blood vessels. These conditions include:
- Carotid occlusive disease
- Deep vein thrombosis
- Leg artery disease
- Arm artery disease
- Aortoiliac occlusive disease
- Varicose veins
- Aneurysms in your abdomen or extremities
Vascular ultrasound procedures are non-invasive, meaning they do not require the use of needles, dyes, radiation or anesthesia and are, therefore, relatively painless and harmless.
