There are a great many specialized ultrasounds that perform specific functions, like echocardiogram for the heart. At Florida Lakes Vein Center, the team uses two primary types of ultrasound to examine your veins:
- Doppler ultrasound: Doppler ultrasound assesses the flow of blood through your veins, highlighting areas where there’s any restriction.
- Duplex ultrasound: Duplex ultrasound combines Doppler with regular ultrasound. This provides images of the vein structure as well as blood flow.
