The Vascular Center of Adventist Heart and Vascular Institute provide vascular ultrasound testing of arteries and veins as a noninvasive way of detecting vascular disease.
The Vascular Center performs carotid, arterial, renal, mesenteric (visceral vascular) and venous duplex ultrasound examinations for inpatients and outpatients. Inpatient and emergency room vascular ultrasound testing is performed portably at the patient’s bedside. All of these tests are safe and painless as they involve ultrasound which gives off no radiation like x-rays or CT scans do.
Non-Invasive Vascular Ultrasound Screening
The Vascular Center now offers Vascular Screening exams. Doctors may order screening studies directly or patients may request vascular screening exams for Carotid Artery Disease (stroke risk), Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) (for blocked arteries in the leg and increased heart disease risk), and AAA (Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm).
The Vascular Center has labs accredited by both the American College of Radiology as well as the Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Vascular Laboratories (ICAVL) in: Extracranial Cerebrovascular testing, Peripheral Venous testing, Peripheral Arterial testing, and Visceral Vascular testing.
The ACR and ICAVL are dedicated to promoting high quality noninvasive vascular diagnostic testing in the delivery of health care by providing a peer review process of laboratory accreditation.
There are several convenient locations to schedule your vascular screening: 11 Salt Creek and 908 Elm – both located in Hinsdale Illinois, as well as at Adventist La Grange Memorial’s Vascular Center which is located south of the hospital in Suite 200 of the attached Medical Office Building at 5201 S. Willow Springs Road for outpatient testing (south side of the hospital campus).
