Arteriogram

An X-ray of the arteries and veins to detect blockage or narrowing of the vessels. During an arteriogram, a small incision is made in the groin. A thin, flexible tube (catheter) is then inserted into a blood vessel. Once the catheter is in place, a small amount of dye is injected in the artery. The dye allows the blood vessel to be seen on X-rays. After a series of X-rays are taken, the catheter is removed.

Coronary CTA

Computed tomography (CT) angiography is a type of medical test that combines a CT scan with an injection of a special dye to produce pictures of blood vessels and tissues in a part of your body. The dye is injected through an intravenous (IV) line started in your arm or hand.

CT (Computed Tomography) Scan

A computed tomography scan, or CT scan, is a type of X-ray that uses a computer to make cross-sectional images of your body. The dye injected to perform CT angiography is called a contrast material because it "lights up" blood vessels and tissues that are being studied.

Fluoroscopy and Urinary Tract Exams

Fluoroscopy is a study of moving body structures. It’s much like an X-ray "movie" and is often done while a contrast dye moves through the part of the body being examined. A continuous X-ray beam is passed through the body part and sent to a video monitor so that the body part and its motion can be seen in detail. Call 888-402-LVHN to schedule an appointment.

Ultrasound

Ultrasound imaging is a test that uses sound waves to make detailed pictures of your organs.

Vascular Studies

Vascular studies are tests that check the blood flow in your arteries and veins. Vascular studies use high-frequency sound waves (ultrasound) to measure the amount of blood flow in your blood vessels. A small handheld probe (transducer) is pressed against your skin.
