Procedure for a phlebography

  • For the phlebography, a tube is placed over the ankle joint.
  • The contrast agent is subsequently administered intravenously into the foot.
  • Images are then taken rapidly in quick succession. For this purpose, the leg must be turned to the outside and then to the inside according to the radiologist’s instructions.
