Vascular Ultrasound

Leg Vein Duplex Scan - £100 per leg

This scan assesses the veins in your leg to assist in the diagnosis of DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis),  for leg swelling and in the assessment of varicose veins. Your leg is scanned from groin to ankle to assess your deep veins for competence and rule out DVT and map out your varicose veins. This allows your GP or Vascular surgeon to provide the most appropriate treatment.

Leg Artery Duplex Scan - £100 per leg

Scanning your leg arteries from groin to ankle with colour duplex ultrasound. We assess your leg arteries for atherosclerotic disease and narrowing/blockages of the arteries. This will enable your GP or consultant to advise on the best treatment.

AAA Screening - £80

An Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA) occurs in the body’s main artery. The Aorta arises from the heart, passes through the chest to the abdomen. A normal abdominal aorta measures less than 30mm in diameter. An aorta measuring more than 30mm is considered to be aneurysmal.  As time passes, the artery wall  can thin and balloon, similar to how an old worn tyre bulges. Family history, fatty deposits, hardening of the arteries, a defect since birth, and injuries can all increase the risk of developing an aortic aneurysm. With a simple scan of your abdomen the abdominal aorta can be assessed and measured. 

We can also monitor Aortic aneurysms at time intervals advised by your Vascular Consultant
