Venous Doppler Sonogram

Venous Doppler (DVT)

Most commonly, a Venous Doppler scan is performed to search for blood clots in the veins of the legs (or thrombus formation) and sometimes arms. These clots may break off and pass into the lungs, where they can cause a dangerous condition called pulmonary embolism. Typically, this exam is requested because of pain and swelling in the calf.
