When patients hear the term, “lab” they frequently think of a place where blood is drawn and perhaps, a place where painful tests are done. A ‘vascular lab” or “non-invasive lab” is a bit different. It is a place where specialized vascular ultrasound exams are performed to diagnose a wide range of conditions. These tests are painless, yet they provide invaluable information regarding the health of your vascular system.
What Is A Non-Invasive Vascular Lab?
Why Choose Nevada Vein and Vascular for your Vascular Testing?
Did you know that you have a choice when it comes to where your diagnostic testing is performed?
Where your test is performed matters a great deal. Unlike x-ray exams, CT scans, or MRIs which routinely yield quality images and results, the results obtained from vascular ultrasound testing are highly dependent on several factors including the quality of the testing equipment, the ultrasound technician performing the exam, and the physician interpreting the images.
If a vascular ultrasound is done poorly, the results may be insufficient for a treating physician to make accurate clinical decisions, your insurance company may deny a claim for vascular intervention, and additional expensive and/or invasive testing may be needed.
