Frequently Asked Questions

With this technology, specialists detect abnormalities or conditions such as deep vein thrombosis (DVT), venous insufficiency, or varicose veins.

Venous Doppler evaluates several venous-related disorders, including DVT, venous insufficiency, and varicose veins. It aids in identifying the existence, distribution, and size of blood clots, along with the overall state of venous circulation, to help a specialist to plan various treatment possibilities.

No, the Venous Doppler procedure involves no needles, catheters, or injections. That’s why It is non-invasive and painless. A gel will be applied to the skin by the technician or sonographer, who gently slides the ultrasound device over the area to be examined. The procedure tends to be well-tolerated and relaxing; however, you may experience a slight pressure or a chilly sensation from the gel.

Venous Doppler is an effective and safe technique with no significant risks or negative impacts. It does not expose patients to ionized radiation like X-rays or CT scans do. Technicians determine the blood flow by applying a tiny amount of pressure, which is rarely painful or harmful.

Generally, a Venous Doppler test doesn’t require any special preparation. You may be asked to wear loose-fitting clothing and take off any jewelry or other items close to the area being evaluated.
