Lower extremity ultrasonography in venous insufficiency diagnosis

Doppler ultrasonography of the lower extremity venous system is a challenging test to perform, due to the complexity of the human anatomy, but is a powerful diagnostic tool for chronic superficial venous insufficiencies. Successful completion of this test requires knowledge of the anatomy, physiology and hemodynamics of the deep and superficial veins of the lower extremity, as well as experience with image optimization and patient positioning to obtain a satisfactory examination. Watch to learn imaging techniques; normal and abnormal Doppler imaging characteristics; diagnostic approaches to this test; and the correlation with other testing modalities.
