A venous ultrasound is one of the most common tests. It evaluates the blood flow of your leg or arm to check for blood clots. If you are having swelling or pain in the leg, your doctor may order an ultrasound to check for deep vein thrombosis (DVT).
We do our best to have our radiologists interpret the information and forward the results to your doctor by the next business day.
This exam is covered under your Alberta Health Care Plan. It is not currently offered at our Saskatchewan clinics.
Please ensure that you bring your requisition with you to your appointment.
1 leg: 20 minutes
