We are pleased to share that Colleen Douville, Director of Cerebrovascular Ultrasound at Swedish Medical Center, published a textbook chapter in Diagnostic Medical Sonography: The Vascular System. Douville’s chapter, “Intracranial Cerebrovascular Examination,” details cerebrovascular anatomy, transcranial Doppler & imaging ultrasound techniques, clinical applications and diagnostic criteria. The book was published this spring.
The Swedish Vascular Ultrasound Laboratory, located at the Swedish Cherry Hill campus, has the capabilities and expert staff that perform specialized exams to assist in the diagnosis and treatment of vascular disease. In addition to conventional examinations for peripheral arterial occlusive disease, abdominal aortic aneurysms, deep vein thrombosis, chronic venous disease, renal and mesenteric disease and dialysis access, this center performs cutting-edge studies to detect abnormalities of the cerebral circulation.
The physicians and sonographers at Swedish Vascular have garnered broad recognition for their advanced expertise in non-invasively studying cerebrovascular disease using innovative test protocols. Ultrasound evaluations of the cerebral circulation are pain-free, require no preparation and are cost-effective. The Swedish Vascular Ultrasound lab is accredited in all five testing areas by the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC), and provides comprehensive diagnostic services aimed at reducing the incidence, morbidity and mortality of stroke and other vascular diseases.
