One in three adults in the UK will suffer from varicose veins in their lifetime. Ultrasound plays an important role in deciding a suitable treatment and should be the first step of the process. The scan shows blood flow and helps locate any damaged valves that might be causing the varicose vein.

Duplex ultrasound scanning is widely regarded as a “gold-standard” procedure, providing medical professionals with detailed imagery to manage the concern.

There are many veins which return blood from the legs to the heart. The valves within these veins are responsible for controlling and directing the flow of blood in the right direction. In the case of varicose vein disease these valves fail, allowing blood to be drawn back by gravity. The result – bulging of the veins on the surface of the legs. The long term consequence of this occurrence can include aching and painful legs, skin changes, swelling or ulceration.

A venous duplex ultrasound scan is a safe and non-invasive diagnostic test administered to assess varicose veins and other circulatory disorders. The screening includes the use of an ultrasound “doppler” to assess blood flow. The doppler provides precise information on the vascular anatomy as well as determining the speed and direction of blood flow. It is able to provide detailed examination of the great and small saphenous veins, as well as the deep veins in which clots (DVT) sometimes occur.

Venous duplex ultrasound scans provide detailed information which forms a map of patient veins. This is essential when planning the correct treatment, thereby ensuring the optimum result and minimising the chances of future vein recurrence.

This type of ultrasound scan is usually performed whilst patients are standing.

"I saw Dr Weber for a private consult following
a misdiagnosis of depression by my GP.
Dr Weber suggested it sounded like perimenopause
and moved me off antidepressants
and on to HRT. I'm back to my old self
and can't thank him enough!"
