Leg ultrasound blood clot
« on: January 18, 2014, 04:11:39 PM »
I had to get a venous doppler of my right leg today because of pain and swelling in my calve . I got the results which came back good but she checked both hips/ groins but only one leg. I'm scared because I read they are suppose to check both legs help!

You can't have bloox clot in left lef with pain and swelling in right leg and without pain and swelling in the left one. What are you scared of?

No I mean apparently they are suppose to compare the two legs but they not did one leg so I don't know how they know it's negative when they didn't compare it to the other leg, it are blood clots easy to spot?

As far as my knowledge goes, they can spot blood clot by doing doppler of the leg in question. When doctors didn't do doppler of both ones, they apparently agree.

Stop googling...
