Venous Doppler Evaluation

What is it?

A Venous Doppler Examination uses ultrasound to create a two-dimensional picture of your veins. This test is helpful in diagnosing a blood clot or a DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis.)

What kind of symptoms might I experience if I had a deep vein thrombosis?

There are many signs and symptoms that you may experience, such as:

  • Limb swelling
  • Pain/Tenderness
  • Acute shortness of breath (occasionally a pulmonary embolus or blood clot in the lung is caused by a blood clot in the leg which has broken off and traveled to the lung)
