    How Does A Vein Scan Work?

    If you are experiencing symptoms of any vein-related condition, our cardiologist in The Woodlands, TX, may recommend a vein scan. It is a non-invasive ultrasound test that generates a map of your veins in the affected area. The scans provide detailed information about the structure, size, and shape of your veins. If they are abnormally large, distended, narrow, or blocked, we can plan an immediate treatment using these scans.

    Using a vein scan, we can also determine the blood flow within your veins. It can help in the diagnosis and treatment of many conditions, including deep vein thrombosis (DVT), peripheral artery disease (PAD), varicose veins, and venous insufficiency.

    Questions About Vein Scan (Mapping)?

    Getting A Vein Scan In The Woodlands, TX

    The procedure for a vein scan (mapping) at our clinic in The Woodlands, TX, is easy and painless. Because it is non-invasive, it does not require anesthesia. You can also eat and drink normally before the procedure. In some cases, we may shave the area to achieve better results.

    We will begin by applying a gel to the area of interest. Next, our cardiologist will glide a small probe, called a transducer, over the region. It emits high-frequency sound waves that help create a map of the veins.

    While moving the transducer, we can also determine the blood flow within your veins. Our team will capture the images from different positions to study your veins in detail. Once they appear on the computer screen, we can save them and use them for diagnostic and treatment purposes.

    How Long Does It Take To Get The Results?

    The procedure of a vein scan is simple and usually takes 15 to 30 minutes at our practice in The Woodlands. Once it is complete, we can record and save the images on our screen. Our cardiologist will analyze the size, shape, thickness, and functions of your veins to determine any possible abnormalities. It may take a few days to get the final results. If we diagnose any issues, we will guide you about the best treatment measures to optimize your health.
