Vascular Laboratory

Welcome to the Vascular Ultrasound Laboratory at the Galway Clinic

Here in the Vascular Laboratory, we are committed to providing the best quality service for individuals suffering from vascular disease. We aim to provide an easily accessible and supportive service for everybody.

Vascular physiologists provide non-invasive diagnostic studies to help doctors in the diagnosis of medical conditions. Ultrasound is used to create non-invasive views to the bloodstream, helping to locate thrombosis, stenosis, aneurysm and other vascular system abnormalities. Photoplethysmography and continuous wave (CW) Doppler are used to assess presence and adequacy of blood flow to different areas of the body. 

Our Vascular consultants at the Galway Clinic are experts in Arterial and Venous Disorders. Our Vascular surgeons are accomplished in Vascular, Endovascular and Venous treatments.
