ULTRASOUND DIAGNOSTIC

Renal Artery Doppler UltrasoundRenal artery ultrasound is a test that shows the renal arteries, the arteries that carry blood to the kidney. These arteries may narrow or become blocked and this may result in kidney failure or high blood pressure (hypertension).

Diagnostic Renal UltrasoundRenal Ultrasound can detect cysts, tumors, obstructions, fluid collection, and infection within or around the kidneys. Calculi (stones) of the kidneys and ureters may be detected by ultrasound.

Diagnostic Bladder UltrasoundMeasure post-void residual urine volume.

Hemodialysis Access Doppler UltrasoundScans the graft or fistula, evaluates the inflow artery, and the entire length of the access, all the way to the outflow vein for an overall appreciation of anatomy. Gives access volume flows measurements of the hemodialysis vascular access providing better information of the graft or fistula to see if it is working properly.

Upper Extremity Vein Mapping Ultrasound and Upper Extremity Arterial Doppler UltrasoundThe ultrasound examination for dialysis access planning is designed to gather information about both the arterial system and the venous system. It is important to understand the procedure and surgical techniques to be used by the local dialysis access surgeon(s) to obtain information tailored to the technique. Both arms can be mapped in their entirety, or a more focused preoperative mapping can be performed that concludes when vessels adequate for AVF formation are found.

Lower Extremity Venous Doppler UltrasoundThe most common reason for a venous ultrasound exam is to search for blood clots, especially in the veins of the leg. This condition is often referred to as deep vein thrombosis or DVT. Also, determine the cause of long-standing leg swelling. In people with a common condition called “varicose veins” or vein insufficiency, the valves that keep blood flowing back to the heart in the right direction may be damaged.

"I love being a patient of Dr. Awosika he’s great always addresses concerns. I wouldn’t trade him for anything in the world. I would highly recommend him to anyone! Thanks, doc you are the best! !!! The staff is great I love you guys."


"Dr. Banji Awosika is such a great doctor. He has helped both of my parents reduce their medications by simply changing their diet. My dad has been able to eliminate nine meds in less than 2 years and almost double his kidney function in the same time frame, thus avoiding dialysis. My mom has been able to eliminate kidney stones just with her diet and without an operation. The team at West Orange Nephrology is such a pleasure to work with and has been such a great asset in changing my parent’s lives. Thank you!!"


"I just finished my 4th appointment with Dr. Awosika today and another prescription drug has been reduced to half the daily amount! Also, within 3 months of following his diet and exercise directions, my GFR went from 44 up to 60! I know of others who’ve had such success. He and his staff are very professional, friendly, and easy to talk to. I highly recommend Dr. Awosika."

"My back story is that I had a non-functional kidney for many years, which symptoms has been misdiagnosed as GI problems until I ended up in the ER with severe pain, and required emergent removal of that kidney. My experience with my previous Nephrologist was not the greatest, mostly because any time I would discuss my concerns about my kidney health, he simply said that I’m young and have nothing to worry about. A friend referred me to Dr. Awosika, and I have never been happier about her suggestion to see him. He always listens to my concerns, sends me for testing related to those concerns, and looks at my test results before saying everything is ok. He considers lifestyle changes before suggesting medication, if appropriate. I truly appreciate his dedication to patient care and would recommend him to any of my friends and family."
