What is the difference between venous doppler reflux and venous doppler for clotting ?

In brief: US and Doppler

Doppler ultrasound is used to determine if there is retrograde flow in valved vein segments, i.
e. between the junction of a superficial vein and a deep vein,, 2) between valved segments within a deep vein (deep vein reflux), 3) between valved segments of superficial veins (segmental venous reflux). B mode US compression techniques look for dvt and distal augmentation to confirm flow upstream

In brief: Doppler

An ultrasound can use doppler technology to see if there is flow toward, away or no flow at all.
When there is a clot, there is no blood flow.
