He spoke of it as a indication of how unreliable the doppler was, but this would seem to indicate that the venogram was the inaccurate one. Could this be what he encountered?
Exactly; Dr. Galeotti states that if you ask a radiologist during the procedure, he will tell you the veins are normal but dr Galeotti dilates the valves anyway. If you do not do that you will miss all the valve leaflet problems. He says the two tests are complementary. So you pick up some problems with doppler and others by venography.
