I was taught to use compression to check extent of thrombus throughout the rest of the limb but no augmenting

I am told that this is not consistent with "standard of practice". Why risk compressing the limb further if there is even a remote chance of embolism? If there is a highly mobile thrombus in the CFV, would you still perform compression maneuvers at the Pop and why? Isn't color and Doppler sufficient once you find thrombus?
