Cardiovascular Package

Cardiovascular Imaging is where we image areas of the body such as the aorta, carotid, and arteries in the legs known as PAD (Peripheral Artery Disease). We use an Ankle Brachial Index to check your arteries in your legs for plaque buildup or hardening of the arteries. 

Carotid Arteries Screening

Carotid ultrasound is a safe, painless procedure that uses sound waves to examine the blood flow through the carotid arteries. Your two carotid arteries are located on each side of your neck. They deliver blood from your heart to your brain. Carotid ultrasound tests for blocked or narrowed carotid arteries, which can increase the risk of stroke. The results can help your doctor determine a treatment to lower your stroke risk.

Screening Aneurysm (Bulging in Artery)

An ultrasound of the abdominal aorta is a non-invasive, painless test that uses high-frequency sound waves to capture images of the aorta, which is the main blood vessel leading away from the heart. Ultrasound imaging of the aorta is useful for measuring its size to screen for AAA. Screening is particularly recommended for men over the age of 60 who have ever smoked, and for anyone with a family history of AAA. In addition to screening, ultrasound is also a useful tool after the diagnosis of AAA to monitor its size on a regular basis to see if it needs to be repaired.

Thyroid Ultrasound Screening

Thyroid ultrasound takes high-resolution images of your thyroid and parathyroid, giving your doctor a better understanding of how to proceed. Any abnormal swelling, pain, or infections could be the source of your symptoms, and ultrasound gives doctors a clear look at the inside of your body. 

Here are some symptoms that could prompt a thyroid ultrasound:
  • Cysts
  • Nodules
  • Tumors
  • Hashimoto’s
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Hyperthyroidism
  • Graves Disease

Plaque In Legs (ABI)

Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) is an abnormal narrowing of arteries other than those that supply blood to the heart or brain. When narrowing occurs in the heart, it is called coronary artery disease, and in the brain, it is called cerebrovascular disease. However, peripheral artery disease most commonly affects the legs.

Lump or Mass Ultrasound Screening

Superficial Ultrasound, sometimes known as “small parts ultrasound imaging” is generally used to examine abnormalities, both malignant and benign, of the breast, thyroid, lumps, bumps, and lymph nodes. These ultrasound exams are helpful for detecting potentially harmful health issues, and they can precipitate and inform successful treatment plans through early diagnosis.

Gallbladder Ultrasound Screening

An ultrasound allows doctors to view images of the organs and soft tissues inside your body. Using sound waves, an ultrasound provides a real-time picture of your organs. This better allows medical professionals to diagnose conditions and determine the underlying causes of problems you may be experiencing.

Breast Ultrasound

Breast ultrasound is where we use ultrasound to see the inside tissue of the breast for any pathology or disease processes. A breast ultrasound is a preferred method of mammogram due to no radiation during an ultrasound exam.

Heart Function (Echo)

A heart ultrasound or echocardiogram evaluates the heart’s function and the squeeze of the heart. It also evaluates the valves of the heart and the blood flow through each valve and chamber of the heart.

Right Upper Quadrant Ultrasound

A right upper quadrant ultrasound examines several key organs of the digestive system such as the liver, pancreas, gallbladder, and right kidney, checking for the source of pain or for any abnormalities.
