DVTrax 2.1

Venous Testing

Left PTV, PERO and Soleal Veins with Compression
Left PTV, PERO and Soleal Veins with compression

When it comes to venous testing we have you covered. We have been providing hands-on venous training in venous for over a decade. Does you facility frequently image all of the calf veins? If your sonographers are not imaging the muscular calf veins then approximately 40% of the patients who walk in your facility with DVT are being missed!


We can fix this in two days! I can not think of another way to improve the quality of your vascular or radiology testing than to improve your ability to detect DVT. In the last 30 years we have seen the mortality rate in cardiac and cancer decrease, however the rate for pulmonary embolism has stayed the same during that time.  With the current changes in healthcare it is paramount to provide front line accurate testing.


We can assist with all aspects of venous testing from: upper extremity, abdominal venous, lower extremity venous, venous for the emergency physician or hospitalist, to advanced venous insufficiency training for the treatment of vein dysfunction.


Please see the outline below on the content covered during a typical two day venous duplex course.

Tool to assist physicians in the progression of DVT.

Brian Sapp, RVT, RPhS of Registered Vascular Solutions, Inc. created the first and only known diagnostic tool to show probabilities and potential tracks of deep vein thrombus. This revolutionary tool actually improved diagnosis and assist in the treatment of DVT. We hope to make this tool available for the entire world to use. The process of creating a secure encrypted website and mobile access while protecting the data and alghorithm is expensive. We hope to raise $10,000 and have DVTrax 2.1 available by 2015.  If you have the ability to give please donate below. We are also open to partnering with a technology firm or corporation to sponsor the making of this tool available. This tool will not be used for profit. If you have any question feel free to contact us. Thank you

Why do we need DVTrax 2.1?

1. More people die from DVT or blood clots than from breast cancer, AIDS and all motorvehicle accidents combined!

2. The mortality rate in the last 30 years has decreased for heart disease and cancer, yet has stayed the same for pulmanary embolism (when a blood clot travels to the lungs).

3. It is relatively inexpensive and will be able to be accessed by anyone with a computer.


What DVTrax 2.1 Does:

1. Shows the potential trajectories or tracks of a patients DVT - Thus giving the providing physician information in how to treat.

2. Provides a quality assurance tool for a facility as they make changes and start imaging all of the veins.

3. Saves Lives!

Outline of 2 Day Program on Venous Duplex

A typical two day program for venous imaging (non-reflux) looks like this:

Day 1

  • Magnitude of venous disease
  • Venous anatomy of the upper and lower extremities 
  • Risk factors
  • Signs and symptoms
  • Calf pump
  • Hydrostatic pressure
  • Venous resistance
  • Cardiac impact
  • Unique features
  • Acute vs Chronic thrombus
  • Diagnostic criteria using duplex imaging
  • Calf vein thrombosis - importance of evaluation
  • Hands-on training 

Day 2

  • Calf vein imaging
  • Precise evaluation of deep muscular and soleal sinus
  • Venous Insufficiency
  • Venous valves
  • Primary and secondary varicose veins
  • Chronic venous insufficiency
  • CEAP Classification
  • Vascular Laboratory evaluation post endovenous ablation, sclerotherapy, high ligation and microphlebectomy
  • Vein mapping
  • Case Studies - Varying ages of DVT
  • Case Studies - Venous insufficiency
  • Upper extremity venous duplex and Doppler evaluation
  • Questions
  • Differential diagnosis with case studies, Baker's Cyst, Extrinsic compression, hematoma, muscle tear, Iliac Vein Stenosis, role of IVUS
  • Pitfalls common in venous imaging and how to not fall prey
  • Hands on Imaging
