September 25th, 2013. Manhattan. The New York Vein Treatment Center is announcing the launch of a new campaign focusing on the importance of ultrasound in vein treatment. According to the Manhattan-based vein center, ultrasound is essential in diagnosis and treatment of venous disorders, including such serious conditions as deep vein thrombosis.
The center encourages the public to consider undergoing an ultrasound test to screen for potential circulation issues.
“Any of tests utilizing ultrasound, also called “sonography”, “duplex” or “Doppler” studies, are uniformly safe, quick, absolutely painless, non-invasive methods providing immediately conclusive and final results,” explains Dr. Lev Khitin, the leading vein doctor at the New York Vein Treatment Center. “Vascular ultrasound is also useful for detecting venous disorders before they cause clinical symptoms, in other words, before a person feels or sees that something is wrong. One of such conditions is deep vein thrombosis, during which blood clots are formed in the deep leg veins. These clots can be thrown into our systemic circulation, leading to serious, sometimes fatal, complications.” Dr. Khitin also points out that ultrasound is often utilized during vein disease treatments as well.
The vein center will be providing information on the ultrasound’s myriad uses in vein diseases diagnosis and treatment throughout the month of October. Interested individuals can learn more by visiting the center’s social media outlets, including Facebook and Twitter.

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 safe, effective, minimally invasive treatment modalities that provide excellent, most importantly permanent results with no side-effects or downtime. Some of these modalities are foam- sclerotherapy and cryo-sclero, radio-frequency ablation, micro-phlebectomy, endovenous LASER obliteration and many others.
