COLOR DOPPLER ULTRASOUND SCAN


Color Doppler Ultrasound Scan
To get the best results in the treatment of varicose veins and spider veins, it is important to identify accurately the exact veins involved and to identify the sources and sites of venous reflux. Visible varicose veins are like the “tip of the iceberg” and it is not possible to be sure of what is going on with the veins deeper in the leg by just visual inspection.

A Color Doppler Ultrasound Scan is the state-of-the-art test that can accurately and clearly demonstrate and document the state of the venous system in the legs. It is not painful and has no risks. The test is carried out with the patient standing and it takes about 20 minutes to scan both legs.

At TVC the scan is carried out independently by our qualified vascular technologist.
