In the first step we use the following non-invasive methods:
- Ultrasound diagnostics
Determining the severity of a circulatory disorder in the legs
Anatomical depiction and examination of the blood flow in arteries or veins
Once we have identified the presens of a vascular disease, we use the following methods for further treatment planning:
- Computed tomographic angiography
With optional 3D reconstruction of the highest quality for the visualization of the vessels
- Magnetic resonance angiography
A method, where neither radiation exposure nor the use of contrast medium is necessary. A 3D-reconstruction of vessels is possible.
- Subtraction angiography (catheter examination)
An invasive method, where after puncture of a vessel and administration of a contrast medium the vessels are optimal imaged. In appropriate cases, the direct use of therapeutic measures such as balloon dilatation or a stent angioplasty can be performed.
We discuss the examination results in our interdisciplinary vascular team (including angiologists, vascular surgeons, and radiologists) in order to find the best possible, individual therapy concept for you.
