Intravascular Ultrasound (IVUS)
Intravascular Ultrasound (IVUS) is a catheter with a tiny device attached to the tip that allows the doctor to view the inside of a diseased artery or vein.
IVUS provides detailed and accurate measurements of disease and helps our doctors to determine the appropriate procedures. IVUS often detects diseased arteries or veins that are missed with other forms of vascular examinations.
Venography is an X-ray examination that uses an injection of contrast material (dye) to show how blood flows through veins. Venography is use it to find blood clots and to identify a vein for use in a bypass procedure or dialysis access.
