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 obtained, and finally fourthly - the effectiveness 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 accessible research methods, based on the Doppler effect (named after 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 graph 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. Regular (traditional) ultrasound mode, which allows you to see a vein in a two-dimensional black and white image, and Doppler mode, which allows you to determine the "fluidity" of blood from a graph. As a result, the doctor receives a complete visualization of the vessel on the screen, which allows him to determine the state of the vascular wall, the presence of thrombotic masses in the lumen, the operation of the valve apparatus, the tortuosity of the vessel and anomalies, as well as the nature of the blood flow: its velocity, turbulence.

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

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 "MIFC" all phlebologists have certificates of ultrasound diagnostics doctor for performing ultrasound scanning of veins, that is, all specialists have undergone multilevel professional retraining and can perform this study. In addition, for many years, working on the most modern ultrasound scanners, the doctors of our center have become experts in the field of diagnosing diseases of the veins of the lower extremities.

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 get 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 in the public sector is far from being the best. Patients often wait for months in a queue for an ultrasound examination at a state polyclinic. And very often the results of such diagnostics are poor. The thing is that in both of these cases, an ultrasound examination is performed by an ultrasound doctor, who does not himself treat venous pathology. The ultrasound examination, which is carried out by the phlebologist himself, is performed in strict accordance with the accepted European standards. The results of such an examination can be radically different from those of an ultrasound doctor. The most paradoxical in this situation is that an ultrasound examination of veins by a phlebologist in Moscow will almost always be cheaper for commercial medical organizations. At the Moscow Innovative Phlebological Center, we do not separate the logistic consultation of a specialist from ultrasound scanning. Vein ultrasound is performed during a phlebologist's consultation. This is the only way to obtain comprehensive information about the patient's venous system as quickly and accurately as possible.

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.
Where is the best place to undergo an ultrasound examination of veins in Moscow? Irina from Podolsk asks:
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.
Ultrasound examination of the veins of the lower extremities, what is it for? Marina from Orenburg asks:
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.
Good modern ultrasound diagnostics of the venous vessels of the lower extremities, where is it done and how much does it cost? Kirill from St. Petersburg is interested in:
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.
Where to get free medical ultrasound of veins? Olga asks from Nizhny Novgorod:
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.
