Non-Invasive Vascular Laboratory

Vascular Laboratory Team

Vascular disease is a leading cause of stroke, death, and limb amputation in the United States today. This is particularly dangerous because, in many people, the disorder goes undetected until a life-changing medical event occurs.

Non-invasive vascular ultrasound testing have been proven to accurately detect evidence of these diseases. Once identified, vascular surgeons can intervene and successfully treat disease to prevent stroke, loss of limbs or loss of life.

The non-invasive vascular laboratory at Johns Hopkins Bayview is operated under the supervision of the Division of Vascular Surgery, staffed by registered vascular technologists and has a state-of-the-art equipment that allowed to perform accurate and precise diagnostic testing . The laboratory is accredited by the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission ( IAC).

The vascular lab offers a wide range of procedures, including

  • Extracranial cerebrovascular arterial duplex scan
  • Venous and arterial studies of upper and lower extremities
  • Abdominal vasculature exams

If you are 55 years or older with cardiovascular risk factors such as a history of hypertension, diabetes mellitus, smoking, high cholesterol, known cardiovascular disease or a family history of abdominal aortic aneurysm, you should consider to see a vascular surgery specialist and have a vascular testing performed.

Serious, life-threatening conditions that can be detected non-invasively include:

Results will be reviewed by a Johns Hopkins Bayview vascular surgeon.

A final report will be sent to you via MyChart and your ordering physician.
