An ultrasound scan is a medical test that uses high-frequency sound waves to capture live images from the inside of your body. It’s also known as sonography.

An ultrasound allows your doctor to see problems with organs, vessels, and tissues without needing to make an incision.  Unlike other imaging techniques, ultrasound uses no radiation.

During an ultrasound, high frequency sound waves, or ultrasound waves, are bounced off tissues in the body by using a special device and are then reflected back to the ultrasound machine.  These sound waves are then converted into an image and displayed on the computer screen. The technologist evaluates blood flow through the vessel, looking for narrowed areas (blockages) in the arteries and blood clots in the veins.  

At Mountain State Vascular our vascular lab participates in voluntary accreditation through the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC) which means we are able to demonstrate a higher level of patient care, leading to better outcomes for our patients.
