Ultrasonic dopplerography of lower extremity veins (USDG)
At JSC "Medicine" (the clinic of Academician Roytberg) in Moscow, Doppler ultrasound of the veins of the lower extremities (UZDG) is performed using modern expert-class equipment and at reasonable prices. The study makes it possible to assess the general condition of the vessels of the legs and various parameters of blood flow. These data allow the doctor to most accurately identify the severity of the disease that impairs blood circulation.
Indications for USDG veins of the lower extremities can be:
- pain and heaviness in the legs, calf muscles;
- swelling in the legs;
- discoloration of the skin of the legs, the appearance of non-healing skin defects;
- increased sensitivity of the feet, tingling sensation in the legs;
- varicose veins, vascular "stars" and "mesh" on the legs;
- leg pain from walking or other physical activity;
- night cramps and restless legs syndrome.
During the procedure, the doctor receives clear images of the vein with the registration of the speed, intensity and direction of blood flow, and also determines various developmental anomalies in the vessels, the patency of deep and superficial veins, the degree of insufficiency of the venous valves, the presence of blood clots and other pathologies. Based on the results obtained, vascular disease of the lower extremities is diagnosed: varicose veins, venous insufficiency, thrombophlebitis, venous thrombosis, endarteritis and others.
Also in our clinic you can do ultrasonography of the arteries. Such studies are extremely important for patients with diabetes mellitus, atherosclerosis and some other chronic diseases of the cardiovascular or endocrine systems. With these ailments, the vessels of the legs are often damaged due to improper metabolism or poor heart function. Regularly performed ultrasound examinations will help to identify circulatory disorders in time and avoid undesirable consequences.
Our specialists pay great attention to the prevention of vascular diseases. Indeed, if you identify a disease at the initial stages of development, it will be much easier to treat it. Prophylactic Doppler ultrasonography of the vessels of the lower extremities will help preserve the health of those patients who have a hereditary predisposition to venous diseases, who are overweight or spend a lot of time on their feet due to professional duties (teachers, artists, waiters). Regular USDG is also recommended for women during pregnancy and menopause or with prolonged use of contraceptives, which increase the risk of developing vascular complications.
Today, ultrasonography of veins is considered the most modern, effective and safe method for diagnosing any vascular disease of the lower extremities. This examination of blood vessels is based on the reflection of ultrasonic waves from blood as it travels through veins and arteries (the so-called Doppler effect). The source of ultrasonic radiation is the sensor of the device, which the specialist moves along the surface of the leg in the projection of the vessel. The received response signals are visualized on a computer screen in the format of a graphic image (dopplerograms), according to which the doctor can easily identify problem areas with obstructed blood flow in the veins and arteries.
Doppler ultrasonography refers to such studies, where the quality of the ultrasound device and the qualifications of the specialist performing the procedure are extremely important. JSC "Medicine" (Clinic of Academician Roytberg) has the most modern diagnostic equipment for the ultrasound scan. Our doctors of ultrasound diagnostics are highly qualified and experienced. Phlebologists, vascular surgeons and other specialists can safely rely on the data obtained by them during the research process in the development of tactics for conservative or surgical treatment.
Our clinic has created the most favorable conditions for ultrasound examinations of the veins and arteries of the lower extremities. Cozy atmosphere, attentive and competent staff, good organization of work allow the patient not to waste time in queues. The USDG procedure itself takes less than one hour and does not require any special preliminary preparation. After its implementation, there are no side effects, pain and discomfort.
There are no contraindications for ultrasonography of the veins of the lower extremities. This study can be done by people of any age and health condition.
You can undergo an ultrasound scan in our clinic at any time convenient for you, having previously registered by phone +7 (495) 401-76-19 (around the clock).
