Dvt: Localized pain behind the knee is not very common as a symptom of deep vein thrombosis. However doing a venous duplex ultrasound (Doppler-sonography) would identify and clarify this issue. Other issues could be localized knee problems, such as a Baker's cyst. If there is a recent history of airplane travel, then ultrasound would be recommended as there is risk of air travel related thrombosis
