Laboratory

Rapha Vascular Laboratory provides a broad range of non-invasive vascular examinations of the peripheral arterial, venous and abdominal visceral systems. Our lab is one of few in the country offer diagnosis CCSVI (Chronic Cerebrospinal Venous Insufficiency) in Multiple Sclerosis patients – a reflux of blood in the veins from the brain and spine (CCSVI is currently under research). Also we offer screening of TOS (Thoracic Outlet Syndrome) and Popliteal Artery Entrapment Syndrome.

Non-invasive tests allow patients to be examined using Doppler-ultrasound (Duplex) free of the risks and discomforts of injections or maneuvers. Patient examinations provide physicians with quantitative information regarding the location and functional significance of many vascular conditions and can provide diagnoses of almost all known or suspected vascular disorders.
