What is a Diagnostic Arterial Ultrasound?
What is a Diagnostic
A diagnostic arterial ultrasound is one of the most common and popular diagnostic tests to determine the health of a patient’s arteries and major blood vessels. This non-invasive and non-surgical diagnostic procedure uses ultrasound technology to get a view of the patient’s arteries underneath the skin without any cutting, scarring, or anesthesia. Patients are able to sit back during their diagnostic ultrasound and relax while our board-certified vascular specialists take a deeper look at their arterial health.

Non-invasive, non-surgical procedure
Takes 45-60 minutes to complete
Can be used to diagnose a variety of artery diseases and conditions

What Can I Expect During My Diagnostic Arterial Ultrasound?
On the day of your diagnostic arterial ultrasound, you will be asked to wear loose-fitting clothing that is easy to lift or remove if asked. Before your diagnostic ultrasound begins, your vascular specialist will apply a small amount of gel to the skin to lubricate the area of the skin that the ultrasound wand will glide over. Your specialist will then press the wand onto the skin of the desired area to get a better view of the internal structures of your blood vessels and arteries. The entire ultrasound process typically takes 45-60 minutes to complete, after which time you can return to your normal daily activities including work.
