Scanning at liverpool Vascular Clinic

At the Liverpool Vascular Clinic we use a few types of scans to help identify and treat numerous conditions. The scans will often be included or be part of your treatment plan with us. The main types of scans we use are Duplex scanning (Arterial or venous) and CT Scanning

The Treatment & Process

A full and comprehensive range of treatments is offered by the Liverpool Vascular Clinic who will assess and provide the appropriate treatment for you. Below are some of the most common scans we provide as part of your assessments and treatments.

Duplex Scanning

A duplex scan uses ultrasound to produce images of blood vessels and blood flow. Most commonly thought of as the type of scan pregnant women receive to see their baby’s progress. 

We can then use these images to tell us where there may be blockages in your arteries and veins, the size of the vessels and any problems with any valves in your veins.

Our professional trained clinical vascular scientist will carry out the procedure which is quite painless with no side effects or risks. 

This type of scan is often part of your assessment and ongoing treatment and if required we will give you all the information needed for you to prepare and understand how and what happens during your scan. 

CT Scan

At Liverpool Vascular Clinic may use CT scanning (CAT Scan) to help us assess, identify and continue your treatment plan with us.

CT scanning is a powerful tool that can produce detailed images of many structures inside the body, and especially for us, images of your blood vessels and veins.

Part of the scan may involve you may be given a special dye called a contrast to help improve the quality of the images.

During the scan, you’ll usually lie on your back on a flat bed that passes into the CT scanner. The scanner consists of a ring that rotates around a small section of your body as you pass through it.

Unlike an MRI scan, the scanner doesn’t surround your whole body at once, so you shouldn’t feel claustrophobic.

This type of scan is often part of your assessment and ongoing treatment and if required we will give you all the information needed for you to prepare and understand how and what happens during your scan.

    Patient Reviews

    "Following the discovery of abnormal blood pressure readings I was fortunate enough to be referred the consultant vascular surgeon Dr Neequaye.

    Tests and scans revealed that I had a rare arterial plumbing configuration. Following discussion we decided that the condition would be managed medically with now annual checks and two yearly scans.

    I am grateful for his level of expertise,the confidence this inspires and for the inclusive nature of our consultations. "

    Mrs H from Liverpool

    "I found him to be an extremely skillfull, cautious and approachable Vascular Surgeon and despite the challenges created by the pandemic left no stone unturned at the pre-op stage.

    He was never rushed and always took time to explain, in layman’s terms, and sometimes with sketches precisely what he was proposing as the solution to my pending complex Aortic Aneurysm repairs.

    My procedure took place in early June 2021, I now feel fit and well and extremely fortunate indeed that my Surgeon was Mr Simon Neequaye."

    "After struggling with the veins in my left leg for 8 years, deciding to proceed with treatment from Mr Neequaye was the best thing I ever did. He kept my calm throughout the procedure, and the results are better than I’d have imagined."
