Aortic Tests | Detroit Cardiologists

The experienced and knowledgeable team of cardiologists, heart surgeons, nurses and support staff at the Heart & Vascular Institute remain dedicated to providing patients with the best possible care. In order to properly diagnose and treat your condition, our heart doctors rely on state-of-the-art technology and advanced testing procedures to pinpoint and confirm specific characteristics of each patient’s unique situation.

This precise and detailed approach ensures that our cardiovascular specialists have the information they need to make informed, data-rich decisions regarding your health and treatment.

The information below explains the two primary aortic tests we perform to ascertain detailed information regarding your specific situation so that we can more accurately diagnose and treat your condition.

Aorta Scan

An aorta scan is a fast, accurate and non-invasive way to measure the diameter of the abdominal aorta, giving our Detroit cardiologists a good indication of whether a patient has abdominal aortic aneurysm, a condition where a part of the aorta begins to swell and may be at risk for bursting, which can be fatal if not treated in time. The scan is painless and requires only a few minutes.

Aorta Ultrasound

The aorta ultrasound test helps our cardiologists visualize blood flow through the aorta, the largeblood vessel located at the top of the heart that delivers blood to the rest of the body.This test is used in patients at risk of having an abdominal aortic aneurysm which occurs when the walls of the aorta become weakened and eventually burst asblood flows through. The test is painless and non-invasive.
