Normal Jugular vein : Normal Jugular vein Normal UE Doppler Findings : Normal UE Doppler Findings Cental veins : Pulsatile and phasic variation Peripheral veins Phasic variation Pulsatible variation +/- Bilateral symmetry Color filling in all veins Normal Right Innominate Vein : Normal Right Innominate Vein Normal Right Innominate : Normal Right Innominate With prominent cardiac pulsations Right Subclavian Veins central : Right Subclavian Veins central Normal Right Mid Subclavian vein : Normal Right Mid Subclavian vein Normal Right P Subclavian vein : Normal Right P Subclavian vein Normal Axillary Vein : Normal Axillary Vein Normally have a flow reversal of blood Normal Left Innominate : Normal Left Innominate Innominate and SVC : Innominate and SVC Abnormal UE Doppler Findings : Abnormal UE Doppler Findings Loss of Pulsatile variation centrally Continous signal Absent signal Reversal flow Stenotic jet Asymmetry between sides Obstructive Waveform : Obstructive Waveform Asymmetry Axillary : Asymmetry Axillary Echogenic area inside the vein : Echogenic area inside the vein Normal Innominate Vein Reversed Jugular vein : Reversed Jugular vein The jugular vein is the commenest in seeing reverse flow Reverse flow occur in response to central obstruction Subclavian stenosis : Subclavian stenosis Spectral Doppler Interpretation : Spectral Doppler Interpretation Abnormal Doppler indicated A- Ostruction ( unknown aetiology , may be acute or chronid or extrinisic compression) B-Site of abnormality inicated level of obstruction Venous Thrombus ;Imaging : Venous Thrombus ;Imaging Clot visualization Varies by its echogenicity Noise may oscure or minic clot Sniffing may simulate compression Noncompressibility as appropriate Catheters and Pitfallas : Catheters and Pitfallas Thrombus Aging : Thrombus Aging Acure Thrombus Expand vein Free floating Smooth Deformable if compressed Jugular vein thrombus recent : Jugular vein thrombus recent Axillary vein thrombosis chronic : Axillary vein thrombosis chronic Pericatheter DVT noncompressible : Pericatheter DVT noncompressible Pericatheter Fibrin Sleeve : Pericatheter Fibrin Sleeve Missed/Found DVT left : Missed/Found DVT left DVT Hared to see gray scale : DVT Hared to see gray scale Scarring (Chronic Changes) : Scarring (Chronic Changes) Normal or small Firm Irregular Retracted Circumferential narrowing Synechia Stenosis can cause arm swelling Scarring : Scarring UE Pitfalls : UE Pitfalls Not all veins are compressible Entire vein may not be imaged Reverberation , noise may mimic clot Nonobstructive thromus may not alter Doppler Collateral may mimic normal vein What is this : What is this Venogram : Venogram You do not have the permission to view this presentation.
