As new techniques for varicose and spider vein removal emerge onto the market, many hospitals and vein clinics are looking to expose their new methods onto the industry and patents. The Vein Center at Carney Hospital will be providing free vein scans whilst also introducing new treatments. This Boston clinic is following in the footsteps of others which are looking to bring about the notion of early detection of venous disease and simply awareness of symptoms, treatments and removal. A local Boston paper the Dorchester Reporter said, "A free Varicose Vein Screening will be offered on Tuesday, May 12, from 4-6 p.m. in Carney's new Copeland Surgical Center located off the Seton Medical Office Building Lobby. If you have varicose veins that result in painful, achy, or swollen legs you may benefit from this free screening. The screening will provide a limited venous ultrasound examination and brief consultation with a physician." These free testings will also allow patients to learn about the various products and treatments available on the market, where to get one and how.
