Types of Investigations and treatments

Why not have a Vascular MOT?

Unlike other scans, ultrasound is completely risk free. We offer a fixed price assessment which includes carotid, aorta and lower limb arterial ultrasound assessment plus blood tests and an exercise ECG, followed by expert advice on how to avoid vascular disease or refer you to the correct specialist.

Types of investigations/treatments:

Carotid artery ultrasound – for patients who have had a suspected mini-stroke or strong family history of stroke/vascular disease.

Deep Vein Thrombosis ultrasound – has your leg or arm suddenly become swollen and tender to the touch? A simple ultrasound investigations can check for thrombosis.

Aortic aneurysm (AAA) screening – AAA screening is now provided on the NHS for all men aged 65 but if you have a close relation who has had an aneurysm diagnosed it is important to have an earlier check.

Cramping pains on exercise – if you suffer from leg pain on exercise may be due to narrowing of the arteries. A simple pain free ultrasound test can confirm or exclude artery disease and guide your GP to the correct treatment.

Varicose/Spider veins – do you have long term leg swelling/aching or visible varicose veins? There are now a range of ways to treat varicose veins without the need for open surgery.

It is essential you have a full ultrasound assessment of veins prior to treatment to select the optimum treatment of your veins. Poor diagnosis and inappropriate treatment can lead to early recurrence of varicose and spider veins.

We have developed a NEW SPECIALIST VARICOSE & SPIDER VEIN TREATMENT SERVICE with our partner Diagnostic Healthcare using state of the art Norseld dual yellow laser.
