Vein showing normal blood flow and a vein showing refluxing blood flow

Venous disease affects everyone differently. That’s why our physicians take the time to get to know you and your veins so you receive the right diagnosis and the right treatment. The initial physical examination consists of learning about you and your family’s medical history, your vein conditions during pregnancy, history of blood clots, how much pain you experience and other important information.

Tests for Venous Disease

As part of the evaluation, you’ll undergo an ultrasound for venous disease in the legs or a venogram for pelvic congestion. These advanced imaging technologies help us map the unique veins in your body, so we can better understand your condition.
An ultrasound uses painless sound waves higher than human hearing. It allows the physician to measure the speed of blood flow and to see the structure of leg veins. A venogram is an x-ray for people suffering from vein disease in the pelvic area. It helps doctors evaluate the condition of your veins and their valves. Before a venogram is performed, a special dye is put into your veins so the x-ray can see them.
