Can MRI detect varicose veins?

Aim: Varicose veins are a common feature of chronic venous disease that causes pain and swelling of legs. Long stretch elastic bandages are one of the methods used to prevent and treat venous disease, but diagnostic benefit by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is not widely promoted.

What does an enlarged vein in the brain mean?

A cerebral aneurysm is the dilation, bulging, or ballooning of part of the wall of a vein or artery in the brain. Cerebral aneurysms can occur at any age, although they are more common in adults than in children and are slightly more common in women than in men.

What causes vascular disease in the brain?

Atherosclerosis is a primary cause of cerebrovascular disease. This occurs when high cholesterol levels, together with inflammation in the arteries of the brain, cause cholesterol to build up as a thick, waxy plaque that can narrow or block blood flow in the arteries.

What is Thurner syndrome?

May-Thurner syndrome (MTS) is caused when the left iliac vein is compressed by the right iliac artery, which increases the risk of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) in the left extremity. DVT is a blood clot that may partially or completely block blood flow through the vein.

Does hardening of the arteries in the brain cause dementia?

Abnormal aging of blood vessels (atherosclerosis). This condition occurs when deposits of cholesterol and other substances (plaques) build up in your arteries and narrow your blood vessels. Atherosclerosis can increase your risk of vascular dementia by reducing the flow of blood that nourishes your brain.

What does a venography diagnose?

A venogram is used to confirm a diagnosis of DVT. It is also used to tell if a vein problem is a blood clot or another kind of blockage. It can be used to look at vein problems present at birth (congenital) or to find a vein for bypass graft surgery. It may be used to find out what is causing swelling or pain in a leg.

What type of doctor do you see for May-Thurner syndrome?

Patients generally come to Center for Vascular Medicine for the diagnosis of May-Thurner Syndrome after experiencing symptoms for several months to years. Oftentimes, they are referred by their OB/GYN or primary care physician. If left untreated, MTS may develop into a Deep Vein Thrombosis (blood clot).
