Vein Mapping Ultrasound

Vein mapping ultrasound is an imaging test to check the superficial veins in your arms and legs to determine if you can have dialysis or a bypass graft.

What You Need to Know

  • The test takes 60-90 minutes.
  • Wear clothing that can be easily removed from your waist up (arm imaging) or waist down (leg imaging). The technician will need access to your legs, from the groin to the ankle, or your arms, from the neck to the wrist.
  • The test is painless.
