    Soleal vein thrombosis
     

    Transverse sonogram of the soleus muscle shows hypoechoic veins (arrows). The inability to compress the veins indicates the presence of deep venous thrombosis.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Soleal vein thrombosis;

    Longitudinal sonogram of the same segment as Fig. 1a also shows thickened non-compressible vein (arrows) in the soleus muscle (arrowheads).

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Soleal vein thrombosis;

    Colour Doppler sonography of the same region as Fig. 1a shows absence of blood flow in the two hypoechoic veins confirming diagnosis of deep vein thrombosis (arrows).

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Soleal vein thrombosis;

    The vein is enlarged due to a hypoechoic clot. Colour Doppler sonography shows that only small areas of the soleal vein are not filled with thrombotic material (arrows).
