What is a Vein Screening?
A free vein screening at Delaware Advanced Vein Center is an educational and informative consultation about veins and conditions that affect the veins. During a consultation, a vascular technician visually looks at the legs and identifies any spider veins, varicose veins, and other preemptive vein issues the patient may have. The technician will discuss the differences in treatment between spider veins and varicose veins, and lastly, suggest the best treatment plan for the patient.

The purpose of free vein screenings at Delaware Advanced Vein Center is to educate individuals on vein health and on what they can do to improve their veins. Delaware Advanced Vein Center offers free vein screenings to give individuals the opportunity to have their legs looked at by a vascular technician as well as become educated on different treatment options.

It is a great way for individuals to find out if their veins are healthy and what their treatment options are without going to the hospital. Offering free vein screenings is one way Delaware Advanced Vein Center incentivizes individuals to take their vein health seriously!
Who Should Get a Screening?
As a person ages, it becomes more and more important for him or her to get a screening since age increases a person’s chances of venous conditions. Those who have a family history of venous conditions are more at risk, and early detection makes a difference in the outcome of the condition. Those who have had deep vein thrombosis should request an exam as well. Those who have limited mobility are at an increased risk for venous conditions. Smoking and obesity increase a person’s chances of having a venous issue, too.
More than 30 Million Americans suffer with painful, heavy, swollen legs as a result of Chronic Venous Insufficiency disease. This disease is a progressive disease that will worsen over time. The cause of this disease is due to faulty valves in the veins that can no longer push the blood from your legs back to your heart adequately. This could cause inflammation of the tissues around the vein, causing leg pain, swelling, bulging varicose veins, heaviness, restlessness, cramps, skin discoloration, numbness, tingling, ulcers, and blood clots.
There are many factors that contribute to Chronic Venous Insufficiency disease, and that that is the reason to attend a free vein screening at Delaware Advanced Vein Center. You will meet with one of our Vascular Ultrasound technicians, who have many years of experience with Chronic Venous Insufficiency disease and treating it. They can discuss your symptoms with you and discuss the treatments utilized at our vein center. The only way to determine if you have Chronic Venous Insufficiency Disease is to have a painless ultrasound procedure completed. After talking with the technician at the free vein screening regarding your symptoms, you can schedule an ultrasound.
