Objective: The incidence of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is increased in patients with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) and its presence is associated with worse outcomes. Ultrasound examination of patients with COVID-19 with a suspected DVT is challenging owing to concerns with disease transmission; the timely initiation of therapeutic anticoagulation is essential. This study aimed to identify patient factors associated with positive thrombus findings at ultrasound examination in patients with COVID-19 who underwent imaging for suspected DVT.
