Vascular Ultrasound

Vascular Ultrasound (Duplex Sonography)

We conduct diagnoses with ultrasound technology for all accessible vessels. For instance, examining the carotid arteries plus determining the thickness of their inner walls is a benchmark for the extent of atherosclerosis and correlates with the risk of stroke or heart attack. Color-coded duplex sonography of the vessels in your arms and legs helps to discover vascular occlusion (e.g. thromboses) or constrictions (stenoses). Examinations of the abdominal and pelvic vessels can show, for instance, enlargements in the diameter of the vessels (so-called aneurisms), lacerations of the vessels' inner walls (so-called dissections), or plaque.

Duplex Sonography of the Neck Vessels (Carotid Doppler)

Sonography of the carotid arteries consists on the one hand of determining the thickness of their inner walls (intima-media complex) and on the other hand of displaying the soft, hard, calcified or also shadow plaques in the vascular region...

Duplex Sonography of the Lower Peripheral Veins

Swelling in your legs - usually more pronounced on one side - can be an indication of thrombosis (blockage in the blood flow) in the lower veins of the legs. Hence duplex sonographic examinations of the...

Duplex Sonography of Varicose Veins

When you frequently have the feeling of heavy legs or you can observe more prominent veins on your legs, you may have faulty venous valves in your surface or deep pelvic veins. Color-coded duplex sonography helps to display faulty valves and...

Duplex Sonography of the Renal Arteries

High blood pressure that is hard to manage could be caused by constriction of the renal artery (RAS = renal artery stenosis). We can conduct color-coded duplex sonography of the renal arteries to...

Duplex Sonography of the Arm Veins

Sonographic examination of the shoulder/arm veins is useful when, for instance, there is swelling of only one of your arms as is the case in thrombosis or before and after implantation of a pacemaker, defibrillator, port or prior to...

Duplex Sonography of the Arm Arteries

Duplex sonography of the arm arteries is useful, for instance, to evaluate the patency before or after installing a cardiac catheter inserted via the lower radial artery. Sometimes when you have a vascular disease, you may also experience...
