The leading role in the diagnosis of varicose veins of the lower extremities today is ultrasound (ultrasound examination of the veins of the lower extremities). And there are many reasons for this: firstly, for this procedure, no special preparation of the patient is required, Secondly it is absolutely painless, therefore does not require anesthesia, third - the speed of the result, and finally fourthly - efficiency and accuracy of this result!

How to understand the terminology of the procedure for ultrasound examination of the veins of the lower extremities
But patients before visiting a phlebologist have a number of questions related to the terminology of this procedure. What is ultrasound dopplerography? What is ultrasound scanning (ultrasound duplex scanning)? What is CDK (color Doppler mapping) or triplex scanning? What is the difference?
Ultrasound scanner for examining the venous system of the lower extremities
Let's answer these questions and decide which way to better assess the condition of the venous vessels of the lower extremities.
Doppler ultrasonography of the veins of the lower extremities - one of the most affordable research methods based on the Doppler effect (a name in honor of the Austrian physicist-mathematician Doppler), which consists in recording the measurement of the speed of reflected sound waves from moving blood cells. Allows you to study only one function - the patency of the vessel based on the schedule of the passage of blood flow.
Ultrasound Doppler for the study of veins of the lower extremities
It is performed blindly, the sensor is placed on the points of the approximate projection of the vessel. If a violation of the patency of the vessel is detected, it is impossible to clarify the cause of this violation, because there is no vascularization itself. Currently, it is practically not used during the consultation of a phlebologist, since it is not very informative.
UZDS (ultrasonic duplex scanning) - This study combines two (duplex) examination modes. The usual (traditional) ultrasound scan mode, which allows you to see the vein in a two-dimensional black and white image, and the Doppler mode, which allows you to determine the "fluidity" of blood on the basis of the graph. As a result, the doctor receives a complete visualization of the vessel on the screen, which allows to determine the state of the vascular wall, the presence of thrombotic masses in the lumen, the valve apparatus, the tortuosity of the vessel and anomalies, as well as the nature of the blood flow: its speed, turbulence.

CDK (color Doppler mapping) or triplex scanning of veins Is not some other method of investigation. This is the same UZDD device (ultrasonic duplex scanning), which operates in an additional third mode (three-triplex), which consists in visualizing the vessels in a color image. Through this, a more informative examination is achieved, which allows to determine vascular patency, speed and direction of blood flow, level of thrombotic lesion with high accuracy.

It is worth noting that ultrasonic waves are considered absolutely safe and have no negative effect on the adult body. Ultrasound can be repeated many times if necessary during treatment.
Based on the foregoing, we can conclude that to date, ultrasound (ultrasound duplex scanning) vessels in color mode is considered one of the best and most demanded methods in diagnosing varicose veins of the lower extremities.
In our center “MIFTS” all phlebologists have the certificates of an ultrasound diagnostic doctor for performing ultrasound scanning of veins, that is, all specialists underwent multi-level professional retraining and can perform this study. In addition, for many years, working on the most advanced ultrasound scanners, the doctors of our center have become experts in the diagnosis of lower limb vein diseases.

All this allows us to perform the most complicated surgical interventions on the veins of the lower extremities under ultrasound control, including endovascular operations (without incisions) and complex reconstructive surgeries in the relapse of varicose veins.
The cost of ultrasound examination of veins in Moscow, as for many high-tech modern services, does not always correlate with quality. You can undergo a survey with a very high cost, but rather low information content. This is possible in some commercial medical centers where there is no modern phlebology. You can call this approach "ultrasound for the sake of ultrasound." The situation is far from being the best in the public sector. Patients often wait months for a turn for an ultrasound examination in a state polyclinic. And very often the results of such diagnostics leave much to be desired. The thing is that in both of these cases, an ultrasound examination is carried out by an ultrasound doctor who does not himself treat venous pathology. The ultrasound examination, which is carried out by the phlebologist himself, is carried out in strict accordance with accepted European standards. The results of such an examination can radically differ from those of an ultrasound doctor. The most paradoxical in this situation is that an ultrasound examination of a vein by a phlebologist in Moscow will almost always cost less, as applied to commercial medical organizations. At the Moscow Innovation Phlebology Center, we do not logistically separate specialist advice from ultrasound scanning. An ultrasound of the veins is performed during a consultation with a phlebologist. Only in this way, comprehensive information about the patient's venous system can be obtained as quickly and accurately as possible.
Cost (price) of service
For the convenience of our patients, we work with banks that offer credit lines. Also in our center there is a flexible system of discounts and installments. Payment by Visa and Mastercard is possible. At the end of the course treatment, the patient is issued a package of documents for submission to the tax office for tax deduction.
The price at the Moscow Innovation Phlebology Center for such expert consultation with ultrasound scanning at expert level is 2900 rubles. It should be noted that the price of this examination, which meets the best European standards, has been preserved in our Phlebology Medical Center since 2015 of the year.
Ultrasonic duplex and (or) triple scan of the venous system in our phlebology center does not require any special, special training. You do not need to bring a towel or sheet with you, the clinic has all the necessary disposable accessories that you will need in the study. And yet, you need to forget fear at home, the study takes place in a psychologically comfortable environment and is absolutely painless.
Irina from Podolsk asks: where is it better to get an ultrasound scan of veins in Moscow?
Dear Irina! In Moscow, the best option would be to perform an ultrasound examination of the veins as part of a phlebologist's consultation. In our center of phlebology "MIFTS" you will not only have a modern study, but also an experienced phlebologist will advise you. You can sign up for a consultation at any time convenient for you by phone: + 7 (499) 450-71-16.
Marina from Orenburg asks: ultrasound examination of the veins of the lower extremities, what is it for?
Dear Marina! Ultrasound examination of the veins of the lower extremities is a very good technique for detecting vein pathology, the gold standard of diagnosis in modern phlebology. The prevalence of venous pathology in modern society is so great, and the complications are serious, that the study of the venous system before many surgical interventions has become a necessary condition. It is worth noting that ultrasound of the veins of the lower extremities has its drawbacks. The technique has a pronounced operator dependence. That is, the information content of the method is largely correlated with the professionalism of the specialist conducting the research. Therefore, it is better to perform an ultrasound examination by a competent specialist phlebologist.
Kirill from St. Petersburg is interested in: good modern ultrasound diagnostics of the venous vessels of the lower extremities, where is it done and how much does it cost?
Dear Cyril! Ultrasound examination of the veins of the lower extremities is best performed in a good phlebology center. The obvious advantages of this solution:
- High level of reliability of diagnosis.
- Ultrasound of veins in a modern phlebology clinic is usually cheaper than in other medical organizations.
The cost of ultrasound scanning of the veins of the lower extremities with the consultation of a phlebologist in our phlebology center is 2900 rubles.
Olga from Nizhny Novgorod asks: where to make a free medical ultrasound examination of veins?
Dear Olga! Medical ultrasound examination of veins can be done in the state clinic in the order of priority. But, there are two nuances:
- Waiting for your turn may take more than one month.
- The information content of such a study often leaves much to be desired.
Daniil from Moscow is interested in: Ultrasound of the veins of the lower extremities, what is the price in the leading Moscow phlebology centers?
Dear Daniel! Even in leading Moscow phlebology centers, prices for ultrasound examination of veins are subject to significant variability. In our center "MIFTS" an ultrasound examination of the veins of the lower extremities is included in the action, which includes, in addition to ultrasound veins, an expert consultation of a phlebologist. The cost of the action is 2900 rub. You can sign up with the administrator by phone + 7 (495) 641-62-70
