Diagnostics

If you think you are having an issue with your heart, arteries or veins, comprehensive diagnostic testing is the first step to knowing the problem and creating a treatment program that best suits your needs. At the University of Michigan, we offer full-service diagnostics with the latest equipment and a credentialed staff so your tests are performed properly and read correctly, all with a quick turnaround.

We offer a full-range of diagnostic services, including:

  • Echocardiogram
  • Stress testing
  • Electrocardiogram
  • Pulmonary testing
  • Cardiac catheterization
  • Diagnostic vascular studies

Fully Accredited, Noninvasive Diagnostic Vascular Laboratory

Our Noninvasive Diagnostic Vascular Laboratory is full-service and accredited by the Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Vascular Laboratories. We test for diseases and conditions affecting the arteries and veins of the circulatory system. Our 100% credentialed staff performs approximately 1,100 tests each month. Patients get same-day testing for emergency studies – usually within four hours of request. Non-emergency tests take place between 24-36 hours after request. Three convenient testing locations are available.

We perform every vascular ultrasound, Doppler, and plethysmographic study available, such as:

  • Carotid duplex exams to check the carotid arteries for narrowing or blockage
  • Venous exams for both lower and upper extremities to look for blood clots
  • Arterial studies, both duplex and physiological testing, to check blood flow
  • Abdominal aortic scans for aortic aneurisms

Our reading physicians are credentialed to read vascular studies, which means they are specially trained and have taken extra classes to know the fine details of reading a vascular study. While some physicians might only be able to tell you a positive or negative reading, we can break that reading down and give you all the details you need.
