I agree. But guess the problem they encounter is that as soon as one has diagnosis then logically also wants the second step...but agree that even if intervention not possible is good to have for the future, so that first step done to move on as soon as intervention techniques will be more widely known and applied.
However, the current limit on intervention is the reason why often even a block on a non-invasive doppler exam is made.. this is indeed absurd. I personally made the experience that as soon as had the doppler diagnosis in hands it finally opened me the doors to get on a local list for follow-up of the problem and potential intervention (as simply the scientific proof of a veinous problem is then there!)
