IMPROVE BLOOD CIRCULATION

Vascular Ultrasound Atlanta, GA

Vascular Ultrasound Atlanta, GA, MetroDerm, PC

A vascular ultrasound is a non-invasive procedure that examines blood circulation in the legs. Using this one simple method, Dr. Laura Garvey at The Vein Center at MetroDerm can evaluate the arteries to determine whether or not there is a blockage or narrowing of leg arteries.

A vascular ultrasound is unlike other imaging tests. It does not require contrast dye or radiation. Instead, high-frequency sound waves are used to produce images of the blood vessels in the legs.

About a Vascular Ultrasound Procedure

A transducer is used to direct a beam of high-frequency sound waves into the body. The sound waves reflect off of internal structures and send an echo back to the transducer. All of this information is processed to a computer, which creates an image of your vessels.

A vascular ultrasound also allows Dr. Garvey to determine the speed of blood flow. This is done by evaluating how quickly the sound waves return back to the transducer. If the blood is moving too quickly, this may be an indication of narrowing or blockage.

This is a non-invasive procedure, so very little preparation is required. If Dr. Garvey will be examining the blood vessels in your abdomen, you may be instructed not to drink or eat for 24 hours. Although this is a painless procedure, you may still feel some discomfort from the pressure of the transducer. In most cases, exams last between 30 and 90 minutes.

Each patient is unique; therefore, results may vary.

TESTIMONIALS

“Dr. McClure has no peer in his field. Apart from his incredible skill as a surgeon, he is also wise and compassionate, too. He knows when it’s the right thing to do nothing. I would not be alive today were it not for his treatment of my melanoma years ago. My wife and I trust him more than any other doctor whom we have ever known.”

Robert H.
“Dr. Neckman came highly recommended by my wife, and I was a little nervous on my first visit. She made me feel very comfortable and almost like a sister was looking out for her brother. She explained everything very well and took care of me with speed and compassion. Couldn’t recommend a dermatologist more.”
Tony M.
“Dr. Berghoff has been my doctor for years and has identified and repaired significant skin issues on several occasions that could have resulted in serious health issues. I always leave his office feeling like I know what my skin health is!”
John P.

“I’ve been Dr. Kim’s patient for over 10 years and she is amazing! I recommend her to everyone and am grateful for the care and compassion she has shown me. Unfortunately, because of my skin, I see her a lot, but she makes visits and procedures as stress free as possible.”

Tara F.
“I have been going to Dr. Alford for several years. She is great! She is so pleasant and listens to any concerns you may have. She is thorough and professional. I always look forward to seeing her. If you’re looking for a great dermatologist, I highly recommend Dr. Alford.”

“Dr. Pearl and her staff are amazing. I can’t speak highly enough about them all.”

Christye N.

“Dr. Papadopoulos did a wonderful job on my recent surgical procedure on my arm. He made me feel at ease and explained everything to me in terms that I could understand. He was precise and succinct during the surgery, and my recovery could not have gone any smoother. I highly recommend Dr. Papadopoulos for any and all skin cancer surgery.”

Martha R.
“I’ve been a patient of Dr. Garvey for a little more than six months. She has provided me relief from a serious varicose vein issue. I couldn’t be happier or more impressed with her knowledge, skill, and bedside manner. She has my highest recommendation. Her nurse, Eulene, and office manager, Chris, are also wonderful. Thanks to Dr. Garvey and team!”
Al G.
“I have always had the best of care from Dr. Niren. I’ve been going to her since 1986, and I have nothing but praise for her professionalism and the time she spends with me.”
