Venous Duplex

Venous Duplex is a key diagnostic procedure offered within our comprehensive Vascular Diagnostics services at Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center. This imaging technique utilizes ultrasound technology to assess blood flow in the veins of the legs or arms. It helps our vascular specialists evaluate for conditions such as deep vein thrombosis (DVT), venous insufficiency, varicose veins, and other venous disorders. Venous Duplex is non-invasive and provides detailed real-time images, allowing for accurate diagnosis and personalized treatment planning. By conducting Venous Duplex examinations, we aim to identify vascular issues early, guide appropriate interventions, and improve overall vascular health outcomes for our patients.

Pulmonary Angiogram

An angiogram of the lung is an X-ray test that uses fluoroscopy to take pictures of the blood flow within the blood vessels of the lung. A thin flexible tube called a catheter is usually placed into a blood vessel in the groin or just above the elbow and guided through the heart to the lungs. Then a dye (contrast material) that contains iodine is injected into the vessel being studied to make it more visible on the X-ray pictures.

Lung (pulmonary) angiogram is used to evaluate the arteries that lead to the lungs (pulmonary arteries) and the blood vessels within the lungs. It can also detect narrowing or a blockage in a blood vessel that slows or prevents blood flow. Angiogram pictures can be produced on regular X-ray films or stored as digital images in a computer.
