Radiologist 's  Response
thank for using healthcaremagic,
'inclusion' does not mean anything in doppler studies.
from the history it seems that she has DVT - deep venous thrombosis.
The treatment basically depends on spread of the disease. the problem arises if it spreads into lung.
Otherwise, oral anticoagulants can be used for treatment.
do write the complete impresssion of the doppler test so that e can evaluate better.
