Vascular exploration

Purpose

Scan arteries and veins with ultrasound to :

  • Investigate the progression of disease processes. Ultrasound can provide data on anatomical changes, such as plaque formation, plaque size and composition as well as blood velocity
  • Determine the flow volume in a particular artery
  • Determine physical changes in artery walls
  • Determination of intravascular thrombus location.
  • Determine the health and nature of tissues supplied by that artery

Equipment:

The Vevo 2100 High-Frequency Ultrasound System from Vevo Imaging Systems (VISUALSONICS, Amsterdam, The Netherlands).
