Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) Treatment

Venography is a test where dye is injected into the veins. This dye allows blood flow through the veins to be seen under x-ray, CT scan or MRI.

Treatment of DVT depends on location of the DVT and may include use of compression stockings, anticoagulants, placement of IVC filter, thrombolysis or thrombectomy.
