The Imaging Center at Carolina Heart and Vascular Center is accredited in echocardiography and vascular testing by the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC). We perform a range of exams, including:

Cardiac Ultrasound

A cardiac ultrasound, or echocardiogram, uses high-frequency sound waves to create pictures of the heart, including the chambers, valves, walls and blood vessels. This test helps evaluate the overall function and integrity of the heart.

Vascular Ultrasound

A vascular ultrasound is a similar procedure that’s used to examine the circulation in the blood vessels in the body. A vascular ultrasound can identify blockages and detect blood clots.

Stress Echocardiogram

A stress echocardiogram is another test that uses ultrasound imaging to evaluate how well the heart is working. For this test, images of the heart are taken before and immediately after the patient exercises.

Abdominal Aorta Imaging

This is an ultrasound study used to screen for abdominal aortic aneurysms, and to follow the size or expansion of an aneurysm.

Doppler Ultrasound

Doppler imaging is used to evaluate blood flow in many of the arteries throughout the body, including the kidneys, intestine, brain, arms and legs.

Varicose Vein Treatment

We offer in-office, non-surgical treatment of varicose veins. These minimally invasive treatments provide an alternative that generally offers less pain and less bruising when compared to traditional vein stripping surgery and laser treatment.
