Light reflection rheography. A non-invasive diagnostic tool for screening for venous disease.
J Dermatol Surg Oncol. 1992 May; 18(5):425-30.JD

Abstract

Light reflection rheography has been increasingly used in the last few years to screen for chronic venous insufficiency. It is non-invasive, easy to perform, and well-suited for repetition and standardization. Light reflection rheography is appropriate for the global assessment of calf-pump insufficiency regardless of whether it is caused by varicosis, the postphlebitic syndrome, or deep venous thrombosis. For this reason, it is a good method to use as a pretreatment selection test, especially for varicose veins. With the application of tourniquets, it can help to predict treatment results. When it is used in combination with ultrasound venous Doppler, a simple decision can be made for the treatment of nearly all venous patients.
