Duplex Ultrasound Imaging of Lower Extremity Veins in Chronic Venous Disease

Guidelines, References

The ACP has developed guidelines for lower extremity ultrasound venous imaging. The guidelines, which are available to all of our members, describe minimum standards for imaging protocols and reporting as well as the necessary qualifications for those individuals performing and interpreting these studies. The accuracy of the non-invasive venous study depends on the knowledge, skills and experience of the technologist or physician performing the studies and the physician interpreting the studies.
