Non-invasive Vascular Testing
Non-invasive peripheral vascular testing allows the physician to make a clinical diagnosis without submitting the patient to costly, uncomfortable and complicated invasive procedures. Non-invasive vascular studies show the functional aspect of the vessels rather than the structural changes that are indicated by an angiogram.
The Vascular Lab at Beebe Healthcare has been accredited by the Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Vascular Laboratories since August 1994. It has state-of-the-art equipment, including color-flow duplex, which is capable of the most sophisticated non-invasive diagnostic procedures available. Tests performed at the lab provide physicians with an in-depth evaluation of the cerebrovascular, peripheral arterial, and venous systems.
Testing is done both for outpatients and inpatients. Most procedures require 30 minutes to perform and are painless. Interpretation of test results is provided by board-certified vascular surgeons.
Please allow 24 hours for exam results. Immediate results are available on request.
Patients must be referred to the Beebe Vascular Lab by a doctor. Procedures may be scheduled by calling (302) 645-3710 between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.
