Since 2000, Quality Vascular Imaging, Inc. has been providing highly accurate, non-invasive vascular diagnostic ultrasound testing. As an accredited facility recognized by the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission for ultrasound testing, we perform peripheral arterial, peripheral venous, abdominal visceral, and cerebrovascular ultrasound. We offer our patients and their physicians the highest level of service. From scheduling through the testing process, our patients receive both a quality examination, and a significant education about the testing process and vascular disease more generally. Our referring physicians receive the most detailed report provided by any competitor, allowing confidence in their clinical decisions.
