Vascular Testing

Diagnostic Technologies for Vascular Disease

Mount Sinai Doctors-Long Island Heart employs noninvasive imaging techniques for the safe diagnosis of vascular disease.

Some of the imaging techniques we use include:

  • Doppler ultrasonography – measures blood flow, vessel diameter, and clot location and size with sound waves.
  • Transesophageal echocardiography – provides a view of blood vessels from the vantage point of the esophagus. The test is especially useful for imaging the aorta.
  • Computed tomography angiography (CTA) – provides a view of blood vessels to determine the size of an aneurysm and the presence of dissections and blockages.
  • Contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance (MR) angiography – uses no ionizing radiation to create images.
  • Angiography – uses a contrast material that shows up on X-ray images to visualize the outline of vessels.
