Vascular Screening At Our Vein Treatment Center in Tampa Quickly and Accurately Diagnoses Vascular Disease
Vascular screening at our Nationally Accredited Vascular Laboratory at The Vein & Vascular Institute of Tampa Bay can provide quick and accurate detection of any arterial or vein disease.
Our Tampa vein experts are advocates of having a vascular screening performed because early diagnosis and treatment of vascular disease can prevent you from developing unsightly spider veins, varicose veins, chronic leg pain, potentially deadly blood clots and the possibility of limb loss.
Why is Vascular Screening Necessary?
More than 100 Million Americans are currently suffering from some kind of arterial or vein disorder. Unfortunately, many of these people do not realize that vascular disorders only get worse with time if they are left untreated.
Vascular disorders eventually cause serious circulation problems that will lead to leg swelling, leg pain and leg ulcers. It is important to realize that, if vascular diseases are left untreated, they can cause irreversible damage to your health, and in more severe cases, can even cause death.
Who Should Get A Vascular Screening?
It is wise to get a vascular screening if you have started to notice varicose veins or spider veins on your legs, if you have painful veins in legs, swollen calves, a change in color of the skin around your ankles or if you have a family history of vein disease.
The sooner you are diagnosed and treated, the better it is for your health and the better the chances of preventing more serious vascular conditions.
The problem is that some vascular diseases are not easily noticed, such as Venous Insufficiency, Peripheral Arterial Disease and Aortic Aneurysms, however they can be very dangerous to your overall health and can even cause death.
You could be starting to have vein damage within your legs without even knowing it. In the early stages of Venous Insufficiency, for example, your legs may look fine and they may not be showing any signs of problems on the surface.
But within your vascular system, some veins may be experiencing a lot of stress and starting to stretch, causing irreparable damage to those veins and the valves within them. By the time you start seeing and feeling the symptoms, such as leg pain, swelling and varicose veins, so much damage has already occurred beneath the surface of the skin.
If you have already started seeing spider veins or varicose veins on your legs, and if you already have swelling in the legs, these are warning signs that venous disease is already progressing in your circulatory system. You should schedule a vascular screening immediately so that you can identify the problem and so that your vascular surgeon can start the appropriate vein therapy.
Vascular Ultrasound is Used For Screening
At The Vein and Vascular Institute of Tampa Bay, a non-invasive, quick, and accurate vascular ultrasound will help our Tampa vein specialists see precisely what is happening within your veins and arteries.
With this easy screening, we can discover your circulatory disease in its earliest stages, so that you can be treated before suffering permanent vein damage that could lead to future health problems such as limb loss, and even death.
