Sclerotherapy & Endovenous laser treatment (ELT) in NYC

We use sophisticated ultrasound equipment to evaluate the venous system. Ultrasound uses sound waves to provide real-time, high-resolution images. Ultrasound offers several advantages over other available imaging tools, such as live x-ray imaging (fluoroscopy), CT and MRI.

For example, ultrasound does not use radiation and is therefore safe during pregnancy. Most small and large veins can be evaluated in depth for the pattern of blood flow, the speed of blood flow, direction and strength of blood flow.

Even small abnormalities can be picked up accurately.

Image Guided Treatment

Ultrasound allows your doctor to precisely and safely deliver therapies to the affected tissue. During ultrasound image-guided treatments, practitioners can directly visualize the needle passing to the target.

Direct visualization ensures accurate placement and offers a greater margin of safety. Smaller needles may also be used, improving patient comfort and reducing risk.

The ultrasound device is used to pinpoint the exact location of varicose veins in order to place the needle in the optimal location prior to treatment.

Varicose veins are caused by weak or damaged vein walls and valves. Normal valves would prevent back flow of the blood. Damaged valves will leak blood backwards. This causes the veins to be full of blood, increasing the blood pressure inside the vessel. This can happen because of previous pregnancy, chronic consipation, obesity or just being genetically predisposed.
