Abstract

Successful management of acute deep vein thrombosis and post-thrombotic syndrome depends on careful patient selection and detailed investigation of thrombus extent, composition, and anatomy. This article reviews the use of computerized tomography and magnetic resonance imaging in the assessment of central deep veins of the pelvis and addresses new developments within the field. Despite drawbacks of each imaging modality, when contemplating deep venous reconstruction, cross-sectional imaging should be considered for preoperative planning and to compliment intraoperative imaging tools, including intravascular ultrasound and contrast venography.
