Conclusion

Color doppler sonography is highly accurate for the diagnosis of deep vein thrombosis in symptomatic patients. The use of SHU 508A improves the quality of color doppler examination especially in indeterminate cases. This results in increasing parameters of diagnostic value of the method. In cases with strong clinical suspicion of DVT and negative initial CDU assessment the use of contrast medium may be helpful, adding little diagnostic information.
