vascular diseases.  perfusion and pressures within your blood vessels

radiation or anesthesia involved in the diagnostic procedure.  We have
a highly qualified and experienced technologist who will perform your
exam.  The results of your exam will be studied and interpreted by our
physician, Dr. Roxana Kline.  Then during your consultation (next
appointment), Dr. Kline will discuss the results of your tests and
discuss the various treatment options.
