This chapter, found in the bone, joint, and extremity pain section of the book, provides a succinct synopsis of a key study examining the use of Doppler ultrasound for diagnosing suspected lower extremity deep venous thrombosis. This summary outlines the study methodology and design, major results, limitations and criticisms, related studies and additional information, and clinical implications. This study demonstrated that 2-point ultrasonography is equivalent to the whole-leg ultrasonography for diagnosing symptomatic deep venous thrombosis. In addition to outlining the most salient features of the study, a clinical vignette and imaging example are included in order to provide relevant clinical context.
