Venous ultrasound imaging is a safe and noninvasive ultrasonic scan that helps your doctor get a clear picture of your veins.
When you visit our office for a venous duplex ultrasound, a conductive gel will be applied to your skin over the area of concern. The ultrasound device will then be gentle moved around the area you and your doctor are worried about, as the device puts out high-frequency sound waves. The machine will then use these sound waves to create a visualization of your veins.
The process is painless, safe, and real-time accurate. This technology is similar to ultrasounds used for pregnancy exams, just applied to other areas of the body. The scans are also gentle enough that we can examine the veins throughout your body.
By using this scan technology, we’ve been able to accurately identify the root of many patients’ venous issues, and provide better medical treatment for them, as a result.
Depending on your health and your concerns, your doctor might recommend a duplex ultrasound to get an even clearer picture of your vein health.
