Duplex ultrasound in venous disease


With the duplex ultrasound examination of the leg veins, the varicosis of the veins can be further determined. This is by the ultrasound more accurate as by physical examination alone.

In addition to the extent of the superficial varicose veins, the deep leg veins can also be investigated.

Furthermore, before the spider veins treatment by sclerotherapy, a duplex examination of the veins should be performed.
