Advances in medical technology make it possible to study varicose veins today without side effects and stress on the body. The previously performed contrast agent examinations only need to be performed in very rare cases.
We carry out the following examinations:
Digital Photoplethysmography (DPPG)
In this brief examination, the filling status in the superficial venous system is measured. Disorders of the function of the venous system on the leg can be detected.
Color-coded Ultrasound Examination (color duplex)
With the help of ultrasound, an exact representation of the superficial and deep vein system can be made. The function of the vessels is examined at the same time. Valve weakness in the deep or superficial venous system can usually be detected easily.
This examination is without side effects and can be repeated as often as desired. With the help of an ultrasound examination, the presence of an acute deep vein thrombosis can either be proven or excluded in most cases.
