arterial evaluationWhat is an arterial evaluation?
An arterial exam looks at the arteries of the arms or legs. Arteries carry blood to cells and organs. As we age, atherosclerotic plaque may form in the arteries to some degree. However the arteries of the neck, heart and legs are most commonly affected. Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) refers to the blockages in the legs, and to a lesser extent in the arms. A physiologic study is performed which uses blood pressure cuffs at different levels of the legs and/or arms to check the presence and severity of the disease process. An exercise study may also be performed to see if the leg symptoms are related to blockages in the arteries. An ultrasound imaging examination may also be performed to look at blood flow in the arteries of the abdomen and/or the legs to isolate the nature and extent of the disease..
