Arm Vein Ultrasound

What is a Arm Veins Ultrasound?

Arm Veins Ultrasound, also known as Doppler Venous Ultrasound of your arms, is a safe and painless radiology exam which is performed to see if there are vein blockages in the arms. This exam is done to search for blood clots in the veins of the arms referred to as deep vein thrombosis or DVT. These clots may break off and pass into the lungs, causing a dangerous condition called pulmonary embolism.

Who should get an Arm Vein Ultrasound?

Ultrasound of Arm Veins is usually ordered by doctors if you have these indications:

  • Pain or weakness in the affected arm
  • Swelling, discoloration, engorgement of superficial veins

Is there radiation involved?
