What is a DVT scan?

Deep Vein Thrombosis ultrasound scan is an essential way to diagnose whether there is a blood clot in the veins and check for a normal blood flow through it. DVT is a very dangerous condition and it has to be diagnosed as early as possible in order to prevent serious health complications or even death, in some cases.

Symptoms of DVT in the leg are:
  • throbbing or cramping pain in 1 leg (rarely both legs), usually in the calf or thigh
  • swelling in 1 leg (rarely both legs)
  • warm skin around the painful area
  • red or darkened skin around the painful area
  • swollen veins that are hard or sore when you touch them

These symptoms can also happen in the arm or abdomen if that’s where the blood clot is.
