NORTH KINGSTOWN, R.I. (Aug, 21, 2009) – Unetixs Vascular Inc. recently enhanced its Revo® 1100 peripheral vascular diagnostic system with the addition of VascuLink® networking and reporting software. The dual-channel system enables podiatrists or their technologists to perform a complete bilateral peripheral arterial disease (PAD) exam in five minutes or less without holding a probe. In a few minutes more, the provider experienced in the use of Doppler ultrasound can obtain individual pressures from the dorsalis pedis and posterior tibial arteries to detect reduced blood flow in specific arteries with Unetixs’ TruDop® continuous wave Doppler probes (available in 8 and 5 MHz models).

As required for reimbursement under CPT code 93922, the five-minute exam produces hard-copy waveform tracings at the ankle using calibrated pulse volume recording (C-PVR) or continuous wave Doppler, and an ankle brachial index (ABI).
