What is a Diagnostic Venous Ultrasound?

A diagnostic venous ultrasound is one of the most common, quick, and efficient diagnostic tests that help our vein specialists determine the health of your veins without any cutting, anesthesia, or scarring. This non-invasive and non-surgical diagnostic test uses ultrasound technology to get a full view of the circulatory system and its structures beneath the skin without any invasive techniques. Patients are able to sit back during their diagnostic ultrasound and relax. Our board-certified vein specialists will be able to tell if further treatment will be necessary.

What to Expect During a Venous Ultrasound

On the day of your diagnostic venous ultrasound, you will be asked to wear loose-fitting clothing that is easy to lift or remove if asked. Before your diagnostic ultrasound begins, your board-certified vein specialist will apply a small amount of gel to the skin to lubricate the area that the ultrasound wand will glide over. Your specialist will then press the wand onto the skin of the desired area to get a better view of the internal structures of the veins and circulatory system. The entire ultrasound process typically takes 45-60 minutes to complete, after which time you’ll be able to return to your normal daily activities, including work.
