Venous Insufficiency testing

Venous Insufficiency testing uses high-frequency sound waves to visualize the veins of the legs to determine whether the veins are working properly. 

 

Common Questions

  • Why would my physician recommend Venous Mapping?

    Your physician may recommend Venous insufficiency testing because of varicose veins, leg swelling, pain, or discoloration.

  • What do I need to do before my procedure?

    You will be given detailed instructions by our staff before your procedure. Be sure to bring your insurance card, photo ID, list of current medications (dose and frequency) and any other diagnostic testing results.

  • What should I expect during Venous Mapping scan?

    You will lay face-up or on your stomach on a moveable exam table. Warm gel is placed over the area to be tested (groin / upper inner thigh to the lower calf) and a probe is gently passed back and forth on your skin over the area to create and pick up sound waves, which are converted into an image on a screen. At some point during the exam you will be placed in a standing position. During the exam, you will hear the ultrasound machine reproduce your pulse as detected through the Doppler component of the exam.

  • What should I expect after Venous Mapping scan?

    When the imaging is complete, the clear gel will be wiped off your skin. After the procedure, you may resume your normal activities immediately.
