Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) is a serious condition that occurs when a blood clot forms in a vein located deep inside the body. A blood clot is a clump of blood that’s turned to a solid-state. Moreover, it is typically formed in the thigh or lower leg, but it can also develop in other areas of the body.
A deep venous thrombosis DVT Ultrasound is used to image or see the clot. This examination’s purpose is to evaluate clot in the femoral and popliteal regions.
When it comes to the best Ultrasound scanner to detect the clot, we recommend the Wireless Linear Ultrasound Scanner L7 – 7.5/10 MHz to Hematologists.
Using the Wireless Linear Ultrasound Scanner L7-7.5/10 MHz while imaging the deep veins of the leg, the physician tries to collapse or compress the veins. We do a DVT if a vein cannot be compressed because a clot prevents the vein from collapsing.
The Wireless Linear Ultrasound Scanner L7-7.5/10 MHz uses various techniques to eliminate the echoes arising from the main transmitted ultrasound scanner beam, from which conventional images are made. Once the fundamental frequencies are eliminated, only the harmonic frequencies are left for image formation.
It’s a special ultrasound technique that allows the physician to see and evaluate blood flow through arteries and veins in the abdomen, arms, legs, neck, and/or brain (in infants and children) or within various body organs such as the liver or kidneys.
Linear Ultrasound Scanner 7.5-10Mhz offers several advantages over conventional pulse-echo imaging, including improved contrast resolution, reduced noise and clutter, improved lateral resolution, reduced slice thickness, reduced artifacts (side lobes, reverberations), and, in many instances, improved signal-to-noise ratio.
Moreover, the Linear Ultrasound Scanner 7.5MHz has wireless connectivity which makes it easy to operate, it is handheld and pocket-size (156mm×60mm×24mm, 308g), it is suitable for obstetrics, abdomen organs ultrasound scanning and applicable in emergency, clinic, outdoor and vet inspection.
Since Ultrasound gives the most accurate non-invasive test to diagnose the DVT, the wireless linear ultrasound scanner in the large veins above the knee is so good that when the test is positive, no further testing is necessary and you can start your treatment.
To sum up, for the prevention of blood clots in the general population, incorporating leg exercises and walking when sitting for hours at a time, having an active lifestyle, and maintaining a healthy body weight are recommended. Walking and leg exercises reduce venous stasis because leg muscle contractions compress the veins and pump blood up towards the heart.
