Left lower extremity duplex ultrasonography was ordered and confirmed the presence of DVT in the superficial femoral vein and popliteal vein.
An ultrasound study was considered normal if the vein was completely compressed, and abnormal if the vein was incompressible or an occlusive clot was detected in target areas, including common femoral vein at the level of inguinal crease, superficial femoral vein superior to the adductor canal and popliteal vein in popliteal fossa.
