Ultrasound helps to visualize veins which can not be seen with naked eyes. We use ultrasound sclerotherapy for intermediate size veins (mostly reticular veins) which are bigger than spider veins but smaller than varicose veins. Injection into arteries and deep veins can have serious consequences. Ultrasound helps to differentiate superficial veins from arteries and deep veins. Other than this visualization procedure is similar to sclerotherapy.
