Petoskey Surgeons P.C., NIVA (Non Invasive Vascular Assessment) Laboratory provides inpatient noninvasive vascular services for McLaren Northern Michigan.
How It Works
Utilizing high frequency ultrasound and Doppler, it allows technologists to examine and listen to blood flow in various vessels throughout the body.
For over 30 years, the NIVA Lab has assessed a wide variety of vascular conditions:
Vascular diseases can be detected early through the use of noninvasive vascular testing techniques performed within vascular laboratories, such as the NIVA Lab. Its findings help confirm or deny physicians' clinical suspicions of a disease.
The NIVA Lab has been accredited by the Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Vascular Laboratories (ICAVL).
The NIVA Lab also offers NIVA SCREEN™, a limited examination also used to detect and confirm the presence of a vascular disease.
