To accurately diagnose vascular disease, your primary care physician or another specialist may request one or more non-invasive test. These diagnostic tests are performed in our non-invasive vascular labs and can range from exercise stress tests to specialized ultrasounds that zero in on the blood vessels or arteries in the arms or legs. Last year, our experienced technologists performed more than 15,000 diagnostic procedures in our non-invasive vascular laboratories.
