Lower extremity venous ultrasound


varicose veins

This test is to evaluate the veins anatomy and function. To determine if the patient has venous insufficiency and/or blood clots on the legs veins. The test is typically ordered on patients with varicose veins or with symptoms suggestive of abnormal venous circulation.

Who administers the lower venous ultrasound test?

  • At the Heart and Vein Center Dr. Farhy himself will perform the test. Most other facilities rely on a technologist to perform the ultrasound, and the technologist will give the information to the doctors. In that case, the doctor receives second hand information that can create misinterpretations and misdiagnosis. Having Dr. Farhy perform the test himself ensures that you get the best diagnosis and therefore the best possible plan and treatment.




The quick, minimally-invasive procedure involves injecting a specially formulated solution directly into the unwanted veins, which ultimately causes them to collapse and fade away.
