I admit it, I rarely have to stand patients to elicit reflux and also believe ICAVL should alter the wording in the patient positioning section of venous reflux studies. To me it's like requiring us to scan arterial studies while the patient is running/walking in place since that's when the symptoms are worse. I wish I could love my multi-thousand dollar table but I'd just rather just scan in a normal fashion to be honest.

And again....soooooo, not condemning the use of the $7000.00 table here.
So do not work for Dr. Mengele. I have a very nice table in a very nice
office with very nice doctors who don't make me lay in the floor.
So delighted that everyone but me seems to have 3 hours to do these vein
exams and arrange your accoutrements.
But please, isn't there anyone, just anyone, out there brave enough to
admit they aren't using this wonder table or some other such
contraption? Someone to admit that they just stand their patients at the
side of the bed or use a nice reverse trendelenberg? Someone who has not
been put into an iron lung by career ending injuries? Someone that
manages to go to work and not break their backs or kill their patients
in the process that is willing to share some tips and quite possibly
save a life???? If not I'm pretty sure this horse is dead...God knows I
hope it is...Cuz it needs to be!...Peace!
