Overview

With our advanced vascular laboratory, Staten Island University Hospital can offer noninvasive testing for a wide variety of venous and arterial disorders quickly and easily.

This ultra-modern facility employs state-of-the-art technology to conduct the latest in aortic, peripheral, cerebrovascular, venous, mesenteric and renal examinations.  Staffed by experienced and dedicated physicians and registered vascular technologists, it is one of only two such labs in New York City accredited by the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission.  

All tests are performed within 20 minutes and no needles, X-rays or dyes are used.  In just one visit you can undergo testing and, if necessary, speak with a physician about the results. Your referring doctor is contacted within 24 hours for any urgent test results, and final test results are mailed to your physician within 48 hours.
