Vein testing can include a visual examination of a problematic area and an ultrasound.
New York, NY (PRWEB) August 11, 2013
New York Cardiovascular Associates is launching a new campaign to encourage the public to undergo vein testing and vein disease screenings. Vein centers can provide a number of non-invasive vein tests to determine the presence of several common forms of vein disease, including venous insufficiency and deep vein thrombosis, the New York City vein center says. The center recommends patients receive screenings to aid in early detection and promote better outcomes.
“Vein testing can include a visual examination of a problematic area and an ultrasound,” explains a center representative. “Ultrasounds are a non-invasive test that allows a doctor to see bodily structures underneath the skin. Vein testing can be completed without a large time commitment. In many cases 60-90 minutes is all it takes.”
New York Cardiovascular Associates encourages anyone who is at risk of vein disease to take advantage of vein testing. People who are overweight, are older, or who have a family history of vein issues are particularly at risk.
The New York based vein center is turning to social media to spread the word about the importance of vein testing. The center will be providing information through its Facebook and Twitter outlets on this topic during the month of August.

Varicose Vein Treatment Options
Varicose veins and spider veins are extremely common in men and women. While spider veins are very small, reddish veins on the surface of the skin, varicose veins are much larger, bulging, tangled veins that may appear bluish in color. Men and women suffer from varicose veins, although women are much more likely to have them.
Today, patients have access to a number of effective varicose vein treatment options. Advancements in technology and medicine have led to the development of effective, minimally invasive treatments that produce optimal results with few side-effects or downtime. These treatments include sclerotherapy, radio frequency ablation, phlebectomy, and endovenous laser ablation.
