Because early detection can reduce the risk of serious complications, Mount Carmel puts enormous emphasis on screening and diagnosis. Using the most advanced, non-invasive vascular testing, our non-invasive diagnostic facilities put us at the forefront of vascular care. And with ICAVL-accredited peripheral labs at Mount Carmel East, West and St. Ann's, we provide superior imaging for diagnostic angiograms. Among the screening and diagnostic tools available at Mount Carmel are:
We use ultrasound to measure blood flow to diagnose and determine the size and location of blockages in the arteries and veins.
CTA, or Computed Tomography Angiography, uses a contrast agent and CT scanner to visualize blood flow throughout the body and identify any irregularities or blockages.
MRI/Magnetic Resonance Angiography (MRA)
MRA allows arteries and veins to be evaluated without using X-ray contrast and provides a roadmap for any necessary interventions.
A diagnostic angiogram is a blood-vessel X-ray that shows blockages or other abnormalities in the veins and arteries.
Mount Carmel also offers screenings for abdominal aortic aneurysm, carotid artery disease and peripheral vascular disease at Mount Carmel East, West and St. Ann’s. To learn more, visit our vascular screenings page.
