Venous ultrasound of the legs
Venous ultrasound of the legs is a quick, reliable, and painless examination using high-frequency sound waves. It is perfectly safe.
Venous ultrasound examination helps determine the cause of swelling, heat and blue discoloration of the limbs, detect expanded leg veins (varicose veins), thrombosis, narrowed veins as a result of atherosclerosis, and vascular anomalies.
The examination is a precondition for varicose vein surgery.
Usually your doctor would refer you for an ultrasound of leg or arm veins, but we encourage all older adults who are overweight, have diabetes and/or high blood cholesterol to have a screening at least once a year in order to detect potential changes earlier and start treatment, if needed.
For this examination, the patient is asked to stand on a step or something similar. During the exam, some specialised jelly is applied to the skin on the area being examined. The jelly prevents air pockets from forming between the patient’s skin and the ultrasound transducer. This allows a higher resolution image to be displayed onto the computer screen.
At our Centre, the ultrasound examination of leg veins is usually performed by a vascular surgeon, but it may also be carried out by an ultrasound technician.
The exam takes from 15 to 30 min.
Results are available immediately after scanning.
No special preparation is required for this examination.
