Ultrasound screenings play a vital role in the detection and treatment of many forms of vein disease.
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) September 26, 2013
Throughout the month of September, the Chicago Vein Care Center is running a campaign focusing on the benefits of using ultrasound in vein care. According to the Chicago, IL based vein center, ultrasound screenings play a vital role in the detection and treatment of many forms of vein disease. The center hopes that the information they provide in this new campaign will encourage more individuals to get preventive vein screenings, leading to earlier detection of potentially dangerous issues.
According to Dr. Ramon Castro, a leading vein doctor at the Chicago Vein Care Center, ultrasound screenings play a vital role in detecting blood clots. “Some types of blood clots, including the potentially dangerous deep vein thrombosis, do not occur with many obvious symptoms. A regular vein screening can detect clots that an individual might not know she has, allowing for prompt treatment and better outcomes.”
The center plans to provide information on the role of ultrasound in vein disease diagnosis and treatment through social media. Information on this topic will be made available through the center’s Facebook and Twitter pages throughout the month of September.
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.
