What is a Vascular Lab?
Feeling tiredness, heaviness, cramping, soreness, and other symptoms in the legs is a common symptom among men and women, but contrary to what you may think, these conditions are not normal and may be a sign of vascular deficiency. When venous deficiencies and diseases are suspected, it is important to have your individual condition accurately and thoroughly diagnosed by a vein professional in order to recommend the best course of treatment to restore your vascular wellness.
The Terason® Ultrasound Machine for Vein Diagnosis
At Vein Specialists of Pittsburgh, we use the Terason® portable ultrasound machine to provide easy and accurate diagnostics for veins in the legs, arms, or neck. This second generation technology has several benefits to patients, including:
- Enhanced Needle Visualization to reduce procedure time, decrease potential complications and improve accuracy
- Grab and go portability that offers sophisticated technology in under five pounds
- Anatomy-specific presets for accurate needle guidance and enhanced image quality
Studies on Carotid Arteries and Lower Leg Veins
At our vascular lab, we also perform studies of carotid arteries and lower leg veins, two areas that are crucial to overall vascular health. When deficiencies are present in these areas, serious venous disease can occur. With early diagnosis and accurate treatment, we can improve the circulation of these areas and maintain your vascular health.
