Vein Ultrasound Los Angeles


Vein Ultrasound imaging, or sonography, is a procedure that produces images of the inside of the body using high-frequency sound waves. These images are captured in real-time, and are able to show the structure and movement of blood flow.

What is Vein Ultrasound used for?

Vein Ultrasound imaging can be used to monitor and diagnose a wide range of conditions. In particular, it is effective at evaluating the location and severity of venous insufficiency. It can also detect deep vein thrombosis and is an important tool during varicose vein procedures.

At the Los Angeles Vein Center, we offer in-office Ultrasound imaging to help with diagnosis and procedure. This leads to fast and effective treatment of various venous disorders. Dr. Lee has been credentialed by the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography (ARDMS) and is a Registered Physician in Vascular Interpretation (RPVI). In addition, our ultrasounds are performed by a Registered Vascular Technologist (RVT) credentialed by ARDMS and a Registered Vascular Specialist credentialed by Cardiovascular Credentialing International (CCI).

What happens during a vein ultrasound?

During the ultrasound, the patient is positioned on an examination table and a clear gel is applied to the area being examined. A transducer is then firmly pressed against the skin and swept back and forth to record the sound waves that are used to obtain the image. The image appears on a computer screen in real time, so that the patient and doctor can view it together.

What are the benefits of a vein ultrasound?

A vein ultrasound is a noninvasive, simple procedure that can be used to diagnose many different conditions by producing images of the soft tissues, which often do not show up well on x-rays. There is no ionizing radiation used during this procedure, and is a proven safe diagnostic tool.
