Sagittal, transfers views was obtained in order to localize the affected area. The result showed that the most affected age group by DVT was (40-50) years followed by (30-40) and the varicose vein affect the population in age group of (30-40) which is the active age. Lab examination PT/INR and D-dimer very important for correlation with ultrasound sometimes it give abnormal result this due to liver diseases (three patients). DVT was noted in 14.8 % from total population, 20.5 % having varicose vein, where most people with LL pain and swelling showed normal result in 34.3 %. Where the most affected limb more the 50.5 % at both site and 29 % for the left one, where the majority of the patient suffering from LL pain in 45 % as strong indicator for LL Doppler US. Finally pain and swelling can be very good indicator for LL disease in which results in deep veins thrombus which is most important US clinical finding.
