Blood moves towards the heart by valves in the blood vessel, which controls the one-way flow. Sitting or standing for long periods can cause blood to pool in the leg veins, increasing the pressure within the veins. As a result, the veins can stretch from the increased pressure. This may weaken the walls of the veins and damage the valves, making it harder to control the flow and thus increasing pressure. This pressure ultimately leads to the development of spider and varicose veins.
The primary tool for the diagnosis of vein disease is ultrasound. This test is performed during your initial consultation visit. It is a simple and safe diagnostic method with high accuracy that enables your vein doctor to immediately understand your vein condition.
Our facility is not only a modern vein treatment center, but it is also a vascular imaging department that specializes in ultrasound of leg veins and on-site readings. Since our facility focuses exclusively on circulation conditions, our ultrasound technicians have extensive experience in venous insufficiency. Spider and varicose vein treatment depends on quality information.
Most importantly, our team of ultrasound technicians and physicians are certified by ARDMS, the organization that is the recognized standard for excellence in ultrasound. Our most experienced ultrasound technicians have the title of RVT (Registered Vascular Technologists). This ensures the quality and accuracy of the vein and vascular ultrasounds that we perform at all our vein centers in New Jersey and New York.
