Blood clot - suspected in the arm, leg or pelvis (Deep vein thrombosis)

There is a suspected blood clot in the arm, leg, or pelvis. An ultrasound scan can establish if there is a blood clot.

About your visit

We have examined you and we have ascertained that you may have a blood clot in the deep veins in your arm, leg or pelvis. Deep veins are the blood vessels that return blood to the heart from the smaller blood vessels in the body. We have treated you with a blood-thinner to make sure that a possible blood clot dissolves.

You will have to have an ultrasound scan to establish whether or not you have a blood clot.
