Vascular testing is a non-invasive way to assess the blood flow in arteries and veins. Ultrasound technology sends sound waves through the tissues of the body. They bounce off of structures in the body including veins and arteries. Those bouncing waves paint a picture of how blood is moving through the body.
At Novant Health Heart & Vascular Institute, vascular laboratory testing can be completed without leaving our office. Our full-service vascular laboratory is open Monday-Friday from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. Typically, test results will be available in 24 to 48 hours.
Everyone on our ultrasound staff is credentialed by the American Registry of Diagnostic Medical Sonographers (ARDMS) in the specialties of vascular testing and abdominal imaging. Physician specialists in the field of vascular surgery interpret all studies.
Even if you are not a current patient, Heart & Vascular Institute can provide your laboratory services as long as you have a signed order from a physician. Please call 704-316-5100 to schedule an appointment. Orders can be faxed to 704-316-5112 after your appointment is made.
