Color Duplex Ultrasound

Ultrasound has revolutionized vein care by giving physicians real-time precision when examining vein structure and function and is incorporate into almost every vein we do. 

Color duplex ultrasound coverts the ultrasound signals into color, typically red and blue, depending on whether the blood flow is towards or away from the probe. The photo example shows this color pattern. This pattern is used, in combination with other techniques, to evaluate blood flow, vein clots, and anatomic structure of the veins. 

Color duplex ultrasound demonstrates here a deep vein thrombosis (DVT) identified in a patient with increased swelling of the left leg.

During an endovenous ablation procedure, ultrasound is crucial to confirm the location of a catheter and ensure certain veins are left intact. 

During ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy, ultrasound is critical to ensure needle placement and proper treatment of the diseased vein. 

In treating spider veins, ultrasound is also used to identify the source of the reflux that is causing the spider veins. Dr. Andrew uses micro-phlebectomy techniques to ensure these high-pressure connections are treated.
