Detailed Venous Disease Evaluation

Venous disease affects everyone differently. That’s why our physicians take the time to get to know you and your veins so you receive the right diagnosis and the right treatment. The initial physical examination consists of learning about you and your family’s medical history, your vein conditions during pregnancy, history of blood clots, and how much pain you experience.

As part of the evaluation, you’ll undergo an ultrasound for venous disease in the legs. These advanced imaging technologies help us map the unique veins in your body, so we can better understand your condition.

Ultrasound for Venous Disease

An ultrasound uses painless sound waves higher than human hearing. It allows the physician to measure the speed of blood flow and to see the structure of leg veins. To the left is an ultrasound image of a diseased vein with abnormal (reverse) blood flow. This tells us that the venous valves are diseased (not closing) and blood is moving in the opposite direction versus towards the heart. The pooling of blood leads to discomfort, pain, swelling, and eventually varicose veins.
