A complete ultrasound exam is an important first step in successfully treating venous disease. Ultrasound is a painless exam and takes anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes.
The venous ultrasound examination permits your physician to see the anatomy and check the flow characteristics of the veins beneath your skin. A thorough ultrasound exam will be completed by one of our experiences, certified technologists, and then interpreted by one of our board certified vascular specialist physicians so that the proper diagnosis is made and the most appropriate treatment methods are recommended for each patient’s unique anatomy .
Ultrasound is often used during the treatment and post-procedure to confirm results and to rule out any complications. Routine ultrasound exams are part of some follow-up visits to track progress and ensure a successful treatment.
