There are several ways to evaluate for venous reflux, but the most common is an ultrasound duplex examination. This study is performed with ulstrasound and evaluates both the deep and superficial venous system for abnormalities such as clots and reflux.

Duplex venous ultrasound is the current reflux exam of choice. While there are a variety of other reflux exams, they are either of historical interest or for research purposes but do not add anything clinically.
Of note, a reflux study must be performed while standing.

The gold standard for superficial venous reflux is a standing venous duplex exam. Deep veins can be evaluated for reflux without standing. There are other reflux exams such as plethysmography which are rarely used.

Of note, a reflux study must be performed while standing. some offices charge an extra fee for a" vein mapping" however that can usually be done during the initial duplex venous exam.
