Varicose Veins

Understanding Varicose Veins:
Varicose veins are enlarged, twisted veins that typically appear blue or purple in color and often protrude from the skin’s surface. They most commonly occur in the legs and can cause symptoms such as pain, swelling, heaviness, and discomfort. Varicose veins may result from weakened or damaged valves in the veins, leading to poor blood circulation and pooling of blood in the affected veins.

Diagnosis and TestingAt Neo TrueNorth, we offer comprehensive diagnostic testing to accurately identify varicose veins and assess their severity and underlying causes. Our diagnostic services include:

  • Physical Examination: A thorough physical examination may be performed to assess the appearance and location of varicose veins, as well as evaluate associated symptoms and potential risk factors.
  • Duplex Ultrasound: Duplex ultrasound imaging combines traditional ultrasound with Doppler technology to visualize blood flow in the veins and detect abnormalities such as blood clots, valve dysfunction, and venous insufficiency. This non-invasive imaging technique helps determine the extent and severity of varicose veins and guides treatment decisions.
  • Venous Reflux Studies: Venous reflux studies evaluate the function of the venous valves and assess for venous reflux, a common cause of varicose veins. During this test, the patient may be asked to perform specific movements or maneuvers while ultrasound imaging is used to monitor blood flow and valve function.
  • Photoplethysmography (PPG): PPG is a non-invasive test that measures changes in blood volume and flow in the veins. This test can help assess venous function and identify abnormalities associated with varicose veins and venous insufficiency.
