Venous Mapping Ultrasound
A Venous Mapping Ultrasound is a non-invasive imaging modality performed in the office. The ultrasound looks inside your blood vessels to see if there are stretched out or dilated veins in the legs that are a source of pain and many other symptoms. This test creates a “map” of your blood vessels to look for medical conditions and to guide treatment options.
Our specially trained licensed Registered Vascular Technologists perform the test in 10 minutes. Our licensed Radiologist then read the images and generates the report that interprets the results.
The Ultrasound works by sending sound waves through the blood vessels in your legs and transforming them into pictures that can tell the physician if your veins are stretched or dilated. It evaluates reflux, which is the blood flowing in the wrong direction, and the width of the veins. It can also evaluate the valves in the veins which are the key mechanism to returning blood to the heart and avoiding trapped blood in the legs and feet.
If the veins are seen to be stretched and the valves are no longer functioning appropriately, the physician can discuss the treatment options available.
There are no side effects to a Vein Mapping Ultrasound. It is painless, harmless and does not use any radiation.
