UPPER OR LOWER EXTREMITY VENOUS ULTRASOUND

The Upper or Lower Extremity Venous Ultrasound is a diagnostic test used to check the circulation in the large veins in the legs or the arms. This exam shows any blockage in the veins by a blood clot or thrombus with compression of the veins. It can also help to diagnose venous insufficiency in the legs which can cause varicose veins.

Venous Ultrasound uses real time imaging and color Doppler to evaluate the venous system. It takes less than 30 minutes and there is no patient preparation required for a venous ultrasound
