Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy
Identifies Deep Veins–And Pinpoints How To Treat Them
The effectiveness of Sclerotherapy has been significantly enhanced through the use of ultrasound imaging to identify damaged veins and guide the doctor during the procedure. Ultrasound can be used to pinpoint the exact location of a vein’s malfunction to evaluate blood flow in a non-invasive manner.
Duplex Ultrasound-Guided Sclerotherapy creates an image of the diseased vein to exactly pinpoint the site of the injection. Ultrasound allows the doctor to diagnose malfunctions in bigger and deeper veins, and it enhances procedural safety and efficiency. This technique is used for treatment of larger veins. When these are successfully closed, regular sclerotherapy is then used.
