Physicians at the University of Chicago Medicine evaluate each patient using advanced diagnostic tools to quickly and effectively identify their condition(s). Our state-of-the-art vascular laboratory was among the first group of vascular laboratories in the nation accredited by the Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Vascular Laboratories — demonstrating our high standards and dedication to exemplary care.
CT Scan: Combines X-ray images with computer technology to provide detailed images of the body, including bone, muscle, fat and organs.
Duplex Ultrasound: High-frequency sound waves provide images of blood vessels, tissues and organs. This allows physicians to assess blood flow through veins and arteries in real time.
In some situations where symptoms are more severe, additional diagnostic procedures may be performed, including:
If necessary, other tests can be performed under the coordinated care of our surgeons. Computed tomography (CT) scans are frequently used for aneurysms when ultrasound evaluations are difficult or inconclusive. Angiography may also be performed to further images of the arteries and veins. These tests may require a short hospitalization, since they involve inserting a catheter into the artery or vein.
