Color Doppler ultrasound should be the first step of diagnosis in suspicious patients.
Both the pelvic region and the patient’s legs should be examined in detail for veins with color ultrasound.
After color ultrasound, detailed examination and visualization of the veins with MR venography, CT venography, or conventional venography may be necessary for some patients.
If, as a result of the above examinations, some structural and flow-related criteria about the vessels are found, PCS may be present.
