Home / NYC Vascular Disease Screening

This is an ultrasound test to determine if there is blockage of blood flow in a particular artery. It is frequently used in the carotid artery to determine if there is risk of stroke or looking for a cause of fainting.

A vascular ultrasound is safe, noninvasive, effective, and painless. (It’s the same technology used to image babies in the womb of pregnant women.) This cardiac test is primarily used to determine if an individual has significant plaque in the carotid artery which would increase the risk of stroke. Vascular disease screening is a painless, noninvasive test. The ultrasound takes about 30 minutes to complete. Please plan to arrive about 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment to complete the registration process.

Brilliant and thorough cardiologist.  Very pleasant to deal with.  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. I would definitely say that Dr Reisman is the best Manhattan Cardiologist (I shopped around). ~ ZocDoc

Atherosclerosis stages
A Vascular Ultrasound is performed by our specially trained technologists after consultation with the best in class cardiology doctor Dr. Reisman and may be used to evaluate one or more of the following conditions:

  • Blood flow in the arteries to detect the presence, severity, and specific location of a narrowed area of the arteries
  • Those who are at increased risk of stroke or TIA
  • Those with cardiovascular risk factors such as smoking, diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, or a strong family history of heart attack or stroke
  • Those with a history of lightheadedness or fainting also known as syncope

Doctor’s Note: Cigarette smoking may change the results of a vascular ultrasound because nicotine can cause the arteries to shrink (constrict). Please try not to smoke for a few hours before your test.
