Medical technology is growing rapidly, creating new harmless procedures to replace riskier procedures. This allows more people to receive treatment if recovery from the procedure is an issue.
One example is how Endovenous Laser Therapy replaced vein stripping as the typical procedure for curing varicose veins. These clinics use top-notch ultrasound machines such as the SonoScape S8 EXP to map out the shape and size of veins in the infected area. Ultrasonographers and physicians use this venous map to detect unhealthy veins so they know where to administer treatment. Once mapped a small puncture is made in the infected vein. A small fiber-optic probe is inserted through a needle into the vein that is being guided by the SonoScape S8 EXP.
This process then collapses the damaged veins so they seal closed and then are absorbed by the surrounding soft tissue, allowing normal blood flow to the heart by the healthy veins.
This procedure could not be performed without the high resolution imaging from a first-rate ultrasound machine that projects the imaging in real time. Fortunately, the price for ultrasound machines is decreasing making ultrasound machines more accessible for all doctors and private practices. If you are interested in buying a Black & White or Color ultrasound machine, make sure to acquire your machine from the same place National Vein Clinics purchase their machines from, CardiacDirect.
