Vein screening is a 15 minute ultrasound screening of veins to diagnose venous insufficiency.
You will be instructed to drink plenty of water and avoid caffeine the day of your appointment. When you arrive for your vein screening, you will be guided to an exam room to change into a loose pair of shorts that will be provided to you. You will stand on a raised platform for approximately 10-15 minutes while our registered vascular technologist uses the ultrasound machine to view your veins. If vein screening demonstrates that you have venous insufficiency, you will be provided with a vein mapping appointment.
