Ultrasound Examination //


A detailed and precise examination is paramount to a perfect treatment result !


At your first consultation, the doctor will do a complete physical examination for you. A duplex ultrasound scan will be suggested to you to understand the venous function and anatomy of your lower limbs. The origins of your leg vein problems will be accurately located and then plotted on a special examination sheet. Example of the duplex ultrasound scan result is as Figure 1.

A hand-held Doppler examination is frequently used to check reflux of the visible blue reticular veins under your skin. An example is as the following video: 

A full examination usually takes about 20 to 40 minutes. Standing is the standard position during the examination (Figure 2). However, if you have severe arthritis, back disorder, leg weakness, history of stroke, or any other reason making standing unbearable, please tell the examiner. We have a special tilting bed for you.
