Duplex Ultrasound at the Alaska Vein Clinic
Ultrasound has revolutionized the work-up and treatment of venous insufficiency. With a single painless study, we are able to diagnose your venous problem and outline a detailed treatment plan.
Ultrasounds at the Alaska Vein Clinic are performed by DEVON BERTHIUAME, BA, RDMS, RVT. He has over 20 years of vascular ultrasound experience and over 10 years of venous ultrasound at the Alaska Vein Clinic.
We perform a complete diagnostic venous reflux ultrasound and vein mapping. We evaluate for reflux problems in the superficial venous system, deep venous system, and in the incompetent perforator venous system. We also evaluate for the presence of blood clots or signs of previous blood clots.
But we don’t stop with the veins. We also look for other causes of leg pain, including Baker’s cysts, tumors, and arterial problems, as indicated.
