A venogram, also known as venography, is a test that lets your doctor see your veins on an X-ray. (Veins cannot be seen on a normal X-ray.) You’ll be injected with a liquid called “contrast dye” to make the veins visible on the X...
If you or someone you love has suffered from a blood clot, stroke, heart disease, or similar health problem, your doctor may recommend a magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) exam. Similar to magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), an MRA is a test that ...
Doppler ultrasound is a technique used to measure the flow of blood through your arteries and blood vessels—usually those in your extremities. Vascular flow studies, also known as blood flow studies, can detect abnormal flow within a blood v...
A computerized tomography scan (CT or CAT scan) is a series of cross-sectional X-ray images of your body. CT scans are used to examine your bones and soft tissues for damage or abnormalities. Often, these images can be combined to create a 3D pict...
An ultrasound scan is a medical test that uses high-frequency sound waves to capture live images from the inside of your body. The technology is similar to that used by sonar and radar, which help the military detect planes and ships. An ultrasoun...
A magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan is a noninvasive test that uses magnets and radio waves to create images of the inside of your body. It allows doctors to see details of your organs and tissues without having to make any incisions. Accordin...
