Diagnostic Workup - Imaging venoso superficiale arto superiore
Last Updated on Wednesday, 27 February 2013 18:51 Monday, 27 April 2009 08:46
The superficial venous circle above the muscular fascia of the upper extremity (membra superius) is always noticeable on an imaging with N.I.L. 760 nm as the defluxio physiological return at the vena cava superior presents a velocity of the red blood cells noticeable on the average with the ecocolordoppler between 16 cm and 18 cm per second : the physical effect of the Doppler is therefore always spontaneously noticeable without any need to maneuver with an operator. Therefore we will draw attention to the imaging of the deoxygenated venous hemoglobin constantly, contrary to how much noticeable it is in the lower limbs with N.I.L. 760 nm.
Thus we will point out a physiological superficial orthodromic spontaneous venous flow (for the membra superius/upper extremity) in absence of any maneuver of activation by the operator that does the exam or other maneuvers (such as the Valsalva maneuver and that are sometimes requested for the patient so as to alter the physiological modulation of the velocity of the flow, constantly conditioned by the respiration of the patient examined)..
