Vascular

The Vevo MD was designed specifically with vascular applications in mind. The ultra high frequency resolution allows for visualization of the smallest vascular anatomy imaginable:

  • arteries and veins in pediatric and neonatal patients
  • measurement of Intima-Media Thickness (IMT) for research and assessment of cardiovascular health
  • assessment of vein wall morphology for cannulation readiness in AV fistula patients
  • assessment of peripheral vessels in diabetes and other circulatory conditions
  • visualization of flow patterns in in atherosclerotic or abnormal vessels
