DVT – Deep Vein Thrombosis

Discover the potentials of vascular ultrasound in assessing  Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT). Stay updated on latest news and access interesting insights on DVT ultrasound diagnosis. 

Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a major cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Venous thromboembolism (VTE), which includes DVT and pulmonary embolism (PE), is a life threatening condition affecting an estimated 1 per 1,000 people and contributes to 60,000–100,000 deaths annually.

The diagnostic approach to suspected symptomatic deep vein thrombosis of the lower extremities is usually based on non-invasive methods, including the estimation of clinical probability, the measurement of D-dimer levels, and ultrasonography.

Ultrasound plays a crucial role in the diagnosis and management of patients with suspected DVT and often is the first line diagnostic tool. Direct and indirect ultrasound diagnostic criteria are now available to detect and characterise DVT.

The list of case studies and articles in this session will explore the role of ultrasound in DVT diagnosis and the sonographic appearance of different types of thrombus.
