What is circulatory testing?
Consult with our board-certified physician of pulmonary, sleep, internal, and geriatric medicine, Dr. Abraham "Avi" Ishaaya, about concerns you may have with blood flow. He has more than twenty years of medical experience and can order circulatory testing based on your medical needs. At Dr. Avi Ishaaya Centers in Los Angeles, CA, we have the ultrasound technology to produce a picture of the area you need to be studied, such as your heart, the carotid arteries in your neck, or the blood flow in your veins, thyroid gland, or abdomen. Contact our office to schedule your appointment to discover more about your blood flow.

Who qualifies for this Test?
Patients who generally need to have circulatory testing need to have a study performed on the heart, carotid arteries, veins, and more to assess your specific blood flow needs. Dr. Ishaaya usually requests a vascular scan to rule out blockages or narrowing of the arteries. It is also used as a preventive measure for stroke.
During an Arterial Ultrasound
We will take you to a private imaging room where you will undress and put on a paper gown. All jewelry will need to be removed as well if it will interfere with the technology. The ultrasound technician will apply a gel to the areas of your skin that the ultrasound hand-piece will touch. During the session, the technician will roll the ultrasound hand-piece over the needed areas. Once all the images are collected, you will be able to get dressed and resume your day as normal.
Your Follow-up appointment
Dr. Ishaaya will go over your circulatory tests results and give his opinion as to what the next steps should be in your treatment. You may need to have several follow-up ultrasounds if there is a medical concern found in the initial imaging.
To Better blood flow
With our noninvasive arterial ultrasound, you can find out how well your circulatory system is functioning using sound waves.
