I have found that most labs that have RVT's do look at them and comment on them but the reports will read "calf vein" thrombus, or something not as anatomical, by the reading Physician. 
I would like to share an observation--sometimes the tech/sonographer at an institution does some awsome work and the report by the Physcian does not reflect that. That can be frustrating for the tech, but it is always good to further yourself.  In time your skills and knowledge will be appreciated. With the upcoming conference in mind, I tell my "partner in crime" (we kid ourselves), that she will be seeing things that we don't do now but may or she may end up somewhere where they do and that extended knowledge is always a plus. It's the Patient that will benefit by your diligence.
