ULTRASOUND DIAGNOSTICS

Duplex ultrasound imaging is arguably the single most important advance in Phlebology, the medical discipline concerned with the veins. For veins to be treated properly, the exact location of venous reflux needs to be identified and any contraindications to treatment need to be ruled out. This is exactly what we accomplish with the use of a venous doppler ultrasound.

At Chicago Vein Institute, our doctors performs the complete diagnostic evaluation of the deep and superficial venous systems to identify damaged veins and valves and pinpoint the location of venous reflux.
The venous ultrasound is painless, harmless, and noninvasive. Ultrasound gel is rubbed onto the area in question and the imaging device is moved along the area to see what lies underneath. Patients are required to wear loose clothing, which will be provided by Chicago Vein Institute. Patients can expect the complete ultrasound appointment to last 90 minutes.

We offer free consultations.
