No preparation for this deep vein thrombosis ultrasound scan is neccesary.
Upon your arrival our sonographer will explain the ultrasound examination procedure. You will need to expose your legs and a small amount of gel will be placed on your skin. The sonographer will follow the length of your leg veins and from time to time you will feel a small amount of pressure. Sometimes you might see colour on the screen or hear a noise. The colour is called colour Doppler and used to see the blood flowing through your veins. The 'noise' is again a technique to evaluate the blood flow and it is called Pulse Wave Doppler. A combination of the greuscale image, the colour doppler and pulse wave doppler is called triplex doppler.
The ultrasound examination should last approximately an hour and an ultrasound report will be issued to take it with you.
