What is Venography?
Venography is an advanced technique using cutting-edge technology that allows our board-certified vascular specialists to see the veins in your body and your circulatory system on an x-ray. While veins don’t typically show up on an x-ray, by injecting an iodine-based solution in the veins to act as a contrast they can be seen. This process is referred to as a venogram. This allows our doctors to get a full view of your veins without having to give you an ultrasound. A single venogram can detect deep vein thrombosis (DVT) in addition to a variety of other potentially dangerous vein conditions.
What are the Benefits of Venography?
There are many benefits of receiving a venogram at Precision Vascular, including:
- Minimally invasive diagnostic test
- Typically takes between 30 and 90 minutes to complete
- Uses advanced technology to detect DVT
- Can detect a variety of vascular diseases
- Minimal Downtime and Recovery Period
What Can I Expect During My Venogram?
Your venogram will be performed at your local state-of-the-art Precision Vascular location by one of our expert board-certified vascular specialists. Before your venogram begins, a special iodine-based contrast solution will be injected into your veins. This is to ensure your circulatory system will be visible with an x-ray. An x-ray will then be taken of the suspected affected areas. The entire venogram diagnostic testing process typically takes between 30 and 90 minutes to complete depending on the size of the area that needs to be x-rayed.
What Can I Expect After Venogram?
Immediately following your venogram, we will monitor the access site for bleeding for a short time. The time will vary by patient and access site. You may experience some mild bruising and tenderness at the access site. This is normal and side effects typically resolve on their own within a few days of treatment. The results of your venogram will be available within a few days of your diagnostic appointment, at which time your specialist will ask you to come in for a follow-up appointment to discuss the results.
Is Venography Right for Me?
If you're suffering from extreme discomfort and believe you may have vein disease or a vascular condition, venography may be right for you. The best way to find out if venography is right for you is to schedule a private consultation with one of our board-certified specialists. They'll be happy to sit down with you, listen to your concerns, assess your veins' condition, and develop a fully personalized treatment plan to help you achieve your ultimate health goals.
How Much Does Venography Cost?
The cost of your venogram will vary depending on the type of treatment you receive, the extent of treatment needed to achieve your desired results, and your health insurance coverage. To get a better idea of how much your venogram will cost, we encourage you to come in for a private consultation with one of our doctors.
