Ultrasound map before treating varicose veins
Is ultrasound necessary?
An ultrasound map of your deep and superficial veins is an essential component of making an accurate diagnosis of the extent of your varicose veins. The Duplex ultrasound gives an accurate picture of the flow within the veins, excludes any problems with deep vein thrombosis (DVT) or superficial thrombosis (STP). The ultrasound also determines what would be the best way to treat your varicose veins with laser, injections or surgery.
