Individuals who are experiencing issues with their veins may be in a situation that is just a little bit comfortable, or they may be in a situation that is so serious that their life may be in danger. Thankfully, there are a lot of tools, medications, therapies and machines that are available in order to help our vein specialist diagnose patients’ vein problems and then come up with treatment plan that is effective.
One of the tools that our vein specialist has at his disposal is the VeinViewer®. This is a tool that allows our doctor to see deep vasculature with outstanding accuracy. In comparison to other vein light devices that are currently on the market, the VeinViewer® is definitely superior.
Some of its features include the fact that it can be pulled right up to the bedside for individuals who are not mobile. It is also very easy to set up. It also offers the technician who is doing the testing the ability to use a hands-free technique.
The VeinViewer® works by projecting near infrared light into the tissue of the patient. It is absorbed by the blood and then it is reflected by the surrounding tissue. The VeinViewer® allows the technician to capture this information. It is then processed and projected onto a screen, allowing the technician to get a view of what is going on in the veins. When the image is delivered to the computer monitor, it gives a real time image of the blood pattern of the patient.
When it comes to dealing with any kind of vein issue, pinpointing the cause of the problem is one of the most important parts of diagnosing the issue. And when it comes to treating the problem effectively, finding the root problem is absolutely essential. When a technician is able to use the VeinViewer®, they are able to find diseased veins and then find a treatment option that is going to be effective for the patient.
Many individuals who have problems with varicose veins try to treat the problem on their own. And, of course, laying with your legs elevated and using prescription compression stockings are useful; however, these things do not always provide long-lasting results. For these reasons, it is extremely important for individuals who are experiencing any kind of vein issues to speak with our vein specialist and find out about the benefits they can receive when using the VeinViewer®.
