You will be given a gown and asked to undress from the waist down and lie flat on a exam table. A Vascular Technologist will then apply a small amount of gel to upper thigh and place an ultrasound probe near groin. The sonographer will acquire images from the groin through the calf and ankle using varying degrees of pressure.
What to Expect
No preparation is necessary.
In emergent cases, or if requested by your referring provider, a preliminary report of findings will be provided immediately following the examination. Final reports are typically available in the morning of the next business day.
