Bunker Vein & Imaging Center: DVT
Deep venous thrombosis (DVT) is a blood clot that forms in a vein deep inside a part of the body. It mainly affects the large veins in the lower leg and thigh.
The deep vein is evaluated every time we work a patient up for vein disease. At Bunker Vein & Imaging Center, we offer this evaluation on an emergent basis for those patients with a presentation that suggests an ACUTE clot (thrombus) in their deep vein, often presenting to their physician with complaints of acute onset of pain, swelling, tenderness or redness in the calf area.
These symptoms have usually prompted physicians to send their patients to a local Emergency Room, where the ultimate testing and subsequent interpretation may take several hours. We offer this service to our referring physicians with a turn around time of usually less than an hour.
