Objectives: Intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) is the “gold standard” to assess iliac vein stenosis. We investigated the diagnostic sensitivity of duplex ultrasound (DUS) and magnetic resonance venography (MRV) by area measurements to detect and to quantify iliac vein stenosis compared with IVUS. The novel use of area measurements to determine the degree of vessel stenosis varies from traditional duplex methodology, which instead relies on visual identification of focal stenosis and local velocity… CONTINUE READING
