Accurate assessment of blood flow velocities and diameter measurements in veins are possible by duplex-scanning. We used the technique for the measurement of venous blood flow velocity under different physiological conditions and after the administration of dihydroergotamine (DHE). In 15 healthy subjects (mean age 30.4 years) diameter, peak and mean flow velocity of the popliteal vein were measured in lying and standing position before and after intravenous administration of 1 mg DHE.
