Lower limb venography remains the imaging modality of choice for detection of asymptomatic deep vein thrombosis (DVT) in clinical trials of anticoagulant agents. A variety of techniques of venography have been described. Here, we describe a modified technique (the "King's" technique) developed to increase the overall adequacy of identification of lower limb veins and detection of small asymptomatic DVT. Essential elements include proper preparation of patients prior to their arrival in the… CONTINUE READING
