According to a statement from the Royal Dutch Cycling Union (KNWU), the 33-year-old will remain in hospital in Rio de Janeiro until further notice.
The KNWU's chief doctor Cees Rein van den Hoogenband visited van Vleuten in hospital and said: "She's recovering well. An MRI scan has confirmed that there is no further injury.
"The most important thing it is absolute peace necessary at this time," he finished.
The rider herself tweeted from hospital to thank fans for their messages and expressed her disappointment about how her race ended.
The crash on the final descent, from a potentially gold-medal-winning position, looked extremely severe at the time which makes the relative lack of serious injury a welcome surprise.
In the end, van Vleuten's compatriot Anna van der Breggen took gold for the Netherlands, with Emma Johansson (Sweden) and Elisa Longo Borghini (Italy) rounding out the medals.
