About AIS

Arizona Imaging Specialists (AIS) is a local family owned and operated company with over 100 years of combined cardiovascular diagnostic testing experience.

AIS is comprised of Registered Vascular Technologists (RVT), Registered Diagnostic Cardiac Sonographers (RDCS) and Registered Diagnostic Medical Sonographers (RDMS) with The American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonographers (ARDMS). Each technologist has extensive clinical experience in hospitals and outpatient clinics. We are confident that we will exceed your expectations by providing your patients with accurate, convenient and comfortable diagnostic testing.

In addition to providing diagnostic cardiovascular testing in our office, we can go anywhere with our portable ultrasound equipment to provide testing. This includes underserved areas where testing is not readily available, which saves patients from having to travel and they get their testing done quicker.  With accurate diagnosis this can expedite patient’s care and get them the procedures and/or interventions done sooner, ultimately saving their limbs and life. We provide testing to care facilities, rehab centers, nursing homes, etc. We can go anywhere. Getting these tests done quickly will also save insurance companies more costly invasive procedures when disease is treated sooner than later.  This can save on added expenses for the transportation and others that are involved in getting patients to and from testing or delaying their testing results, which delays treatment when needed.  

We work closely with specialists – vascular surgery, interventional radiology, cardiology and neurology. The accuracy of the exams we provide allows physicians and surgeons to get the information needed reducing the amount of additional expensive testing for MRA, CTA and unnecessary angiograms. This in turn allows patient’s to get their procedures done when needed and quickly.  

For example – if we find a blockage in a leg, specialists can use the ultrasound findings and take the patient to the Angio suite for a procedure to open up the blockage, restoring blood flow and preventing ulcers or slow healing wounds, which can be a long costly treatment for insurance companies.  If we do an ultrasound and find the patient doesn’t have significant disease, the patient doesn’t need to go through the unnecessary, expensive and invasive added procedures like an angiogram, MRA or CTA. This saves the patient and insurance company both time and money. The specialists and interventionalists can make the decisions they need based on the ultrasound exam findings of AIS’ technologists and treat patients accordingly.
