Your veins are an essential part of your body, and any vein-related health complication can result in pain and other significant medical conditions. If you are unsure whether you have one of these conditions, an evaluation with state of the art ultrasound vein mapping procedure in Westminster will help in diagnosis of your problem.
Ultrasound utilizes sound wave technology to capture images of your veins to identify potential health concerns in a non-invasive way. If you suspect that an undiagnosed vein condition is the source of your pain, the Artemis team can help. Board-certified physician Dr. David Pinsinski has over 20 years of experience in the medical field and has diagnosed and treated countless patients suffering from vein conditions.
Venous ultrasound is one of the best methods of observing and diagnosing vein disorders. Unlike needle and catheter methods, the ultrasound vein diagnosis procedure is non-invasive. Ultrasonography emits inaudible sound waves into your body to detect vein issues. This is an effective, painless, and harmless procedure. We offer this procedure in-house, making Artemis a one-stop shop.
The sound waves echo off internal organs, tissue, as well as veins. A computer measures these sound waves to create real-time images that identify vein abnormalities in your body. All of these images are compiled to give a complete map of the vein anatomy of your legs. Dr. Pinsinski uses the History and Physical Examination in combination with the vein mapping images and laboratory data to develop a treatment plan specific to your problem.
Ultrasonography is the gold standard in diagnosing venous problems. While this technology offers a painless method of diagnosing many vein conditions, some venous problems may not be visible with ultrasound. Should this be the case, Dr. Pinsinski will discuss other imaging modalities to help diagnose your problem.
At Artemis Vein Center, we perform all diagnosis and treatment procedures in our clinic. When you visit our Westminster office for a venous ultrasound, the procedure will be explained clearly to make you as comfortable as possible.
We begin by asking you to lie down so we can access the parts of your body where the vein problems may be present. We will apply gel to the regions undergoing evaluation to ensure the sound waves are emitted directly from the device into your body.
We will then place the ultrasound machine on your skin and move it over the area of interest to capture a complete map of your veins. Because the procedure is non-invasive, our patients do not experience discomfort. The entire process typically takes around 30 to 45 minutes to complete.
Venous ultrasound is an excellent, non-invasive method of diagnosing vein problems. This quick and painless process is an exceptional alternative to more invasive diagnostic methods and is now considered the gold standard in diagnosis.
As a Diplomate with the American Board of Venous and Lymphatic Medicine and certification as a Registered Phlebology Sonographer, Dr. Pinsinski is well trained with venous ultrasonography and has accurately assessed many patients’ conditions with this procedure.
