Vascular Ultrasound Q&A

What is a vascular ultrasound?

A vascular ultrasound is an imaging test that uses high-frequency sound waves to evaluate your blood vessels, including the arteries and veins, to see how well blood flows through them.


This diagnostic ultrasound diagnoses health conditions like chronic venous insufficiency (CVI), causing poor circulation in the veins of the legs, and peripheral vascular disease (PVD), causing narrowing in the arteries in the arms and legs.


UIMG Community Health Clinic specializes in diagnostic ultrasound testing, using advanced imaging tools to provide high-quality testing and care to patients and referring physicians.

I have leg pain. Do I need a vascular ultrasound?

Your primary care provider could recommend vascular ultrasound if you experience leg pain when walking or climbing. This pain is called claudication and is common with PVD.


UIMG Community Health Clinic performs arterial duplex ultrasounds in the lower extremities to diagnose PVD.

  • Vascular and venous duplex imaging
  • Screening for and diagnosing arterial and venous disease

  • Upper and lower extremity ultrasound
  • Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) screening

  • Evaluation for renal artery stenosis (blockage in the renal artery)
  • Renal ultrasound for renal hypertension, diabetic end-stage renal disease
  • Evaluation for deep vein thrombosis (DVT)
  • Evaluation for venous reflux and venous insufficiency
  • Mapping for varicose vein ablations
  • Renal transplant evaluations
  • Liver duplex

UIMG Community Health Clinic also does additional screenings for PVD, including ankle-brachial and toe-brachial indices and pressures (measuring and comparing blood pressure in the extremities).
