Duplex ultrasonography of the lower extremity was used for routine non-invasive screening for asymptomatic proximal and distal deep venous thrombosis, for monitoring of potential propagation of deep venous thrombosis from distal to proximal, and for confirmation of the resolution of proximal deep venous thrombosis after treatment. In the first part of the study, to substantiate the accuracy of duplex ultrasonography, 130 lower limbs (seventy-nine patients) were studied with that modality as… CONTINUE READING
