Abstract: Several diagnostic strategies using Color Duplex Imaging (CDI) and Clinical Prediction Rules in diagnosis deep-vein thrombosis,. The purpose of this review is to discuss the utility of Color Duplex Imaging (CDI) for diagnosis of acute lower extremity DVT. The effectiveness and practicality of venous ultrasonography as a stand-alone examination versus clinical prediction assessment. One hundred and ninety two patients were referred for ultrasonic examination with classical features of DVT and (CDI) done for them to confirm affecting by DVT..The majority of patient were females 112 (58.3 %) compared to males 80 patients (41.7 %).. (CDI) was positive in 179 patients (93.2 %). Doppler ultrasonography showed that 135patients (70.3 %) had proximal DVT, while 44 patients (22.9 %) had as well as distal DVT. 163 patients (91.1 %) of proximal as well as distal DVT were diagnosed by (CDDUI) and confirmed, while 16 patients (8.9 %) had inconclusive findings, which were confirmed by (CDDUI). (CDDUI) compared with clinical findings showed sensitivity (97 %) specificity (88 %) positive predictive value (99 %) negative predictive value (55 %). and accuracy (96.4 %).
