What is peripheral artery disease (PAD)?


Allina Health Coon Rapids Clinics uses PADnet technology to find and treat a common blood flow problem called peripheral artery disease (PAD).

Early discomfort or muscle pain in your legs may be a sign of peripheral artery disease (PAD). Early diagnosis and treatment for this serious condition can decreaser the risk of heart attack, stroke or death.

A PADnet test takes about 20 to 30 minutes and is performed in the radiology department. It is available at Allina Health Coon Rapids Clinic.
