abstract

  • Duplex ultrasound requires the examiner to solve a puzzle to explain the patient's clinical manifestations. Patients who have been treated with surgery, thermal ablation, or ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy will require duplex ultrasound after treatment to identify complications, gauge the extent of treatment success, and evaluate the cause for any recurrence.
