BVI Now Offers Both General Diagnostic and Vascular Ultrasound

VCU Baird Kidney ultrasound

The VCU Health Baird Vascular Institute is excited to begin offering both general diagnostic and vascular ultrasound services. The ultrasound technology that gives you the first look at a baby in the womb is the technology that has transformed the practice of medicine — offering a high-resolution, live picture of what is going on in your body and inside your veins. Using ultrasound imaging, we can take a close-up, precise and live-action view of bodily organs, veins, arteries, and the blood moving throughout your body.

Ultrasound is ultrasafe. Unlike ionizing radiation that is used in x-rays or CT scans, ultrasound technology utilizes soundwaves to look inside the body. This means that ultrasound is a very safe and effective way to perform diagnostic imaging. Now with general diagnostic ultrasound we are able to perform:

  • Abdominal scans
  • Kidney scans
  • Testicular ultrasound
  • Thyroid scans
  • Liver doppler…and much more
