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.
