The Vascular Institute at Anne Arundel Medical Center offers the latest technologies for detecting and diagnosing vascular and cardiovascular disease. If your doctor suspects vascular disease, he or she may order one of the following tests, all of which are completely non-invasive:
CT (Computerized Tomography) Scan - a highly advanced form of X-ray that takes pictures of your body in cross sections
Magnetic Resonance Angiography - similar to an MRI, using magnetic resonance technology to generate detailed images of the arteries and veins
Ankle Brachial Index - measures blood pressure in your ankle and compares it to blood pressure in your arm
Ultrasound Doppler Test - another way of seeing inside the blood vessel, using sound waves to generate an image
Early diagnosis is the key to avoiding a life-threatening or disabling stroke associated with vascular disease. Find a vascular surgeon who can help you now.
