A Vascular Ultrasound, also called a duplex ultrasound, is an imaging test used to see how blood moves through your arteries and veins. It measures the speed of the flow of blood and can reveal if there are any blockages. Our health care team uses vascular ultrasound to diagnose a number of conditions, including varicose veins, abdominal aneurysm and arterial occlusion.
A nerve conduction velocity test, also called a nerve conduction study, measures how quickly electrical impulses move along a nerve.
The American Diabetes Association recommends that diabetics be tested annually to help determine the specific degree of Neuropathy, both in the extremities and generally.
