IACVL – Intersocietal Accreditation Commission Vascular Testing
Health care organizations are held to very high levels of accountability. IACVL Accreditation means that our patients can be reassured that their non-invasive vascular exams are being performed by highly experienced staff and qualified Physicians.
The Vascular Lab provides non-invasive testing to locate areas of vascular blockage and disease which may be producing your symptoms. These tests may include:
- Carotid Doppler scan

- Renal (kidney) arteries
“Ultrascreen” testing is also available for patients that would like to be screened for peripheral vascular disease.
