The correlation between venography and SGP in 41 patients was studied. Fourteen normal subjects were used as a reference. SGP was shown to be very sensitive (97.5%), including proximal and distal DVT, and highly specific (96.4%). After some recommendations for patient positioning and technical use, it will enhance both the accuracy and the reproducibility of plethysmography for evaluation of patients with suspected deep venous thrombosis.
