Özet

Objective: Ultrasound venous compression (UVC) is considered the gold standard for confirmation of deep venous thrombosis (DVT) of the lower extremities. The objective of this study was to assess the contribution and significance of venous compression in comparison to color flow duplex (CFD) ultrasonography alone in the diagnosis of DVT.
