Methods and Materials

Sixty patients with clinical suspicion of lower limb DVT were examined sonographically with and without the use of Levovist. Suspicion of this clinical entity was based on patients clinical symptoms and risk factors. Most frequent symptoms were pain, swelling, fever and clinical signs were tenderness, redness, local heat, edema and prominent superficial veins. Most frequent predisposing factors were prolonged bed rest and recent surgery. Asymptomatic patients, who were examined with CDU with sole criterion predisposing factors, were excluded from the study. Indeterminate scans led to further clinical and diagnostic imaging evaluation and were not used for calculation of diagnostic value parameters. The gold standard method for the assessment of CDU results in our study was ascending venography.
