In brief: Should be done
After having a blood clot and being treated for it, it is important to know whether the clot is completely gone or not and to know if the clot has damaged the vein where it was.

In brief: Clot
The answer is yes.
Sometimes repeat ultrasounds are preformed to make sure the clot has compeltely dissolved. A repeat ultrasound may show minimal wall thickening in the lower extremities compatible with old clot.
