This non-invasive test helps the physician determine if the arteries in the legs or arms are blocked or narrowed. When there is blockage or narrowing of the leg or arm arteries you may have pain, coldness, numbness or non-healing ulcers in the affected limb. The test uses ultrasound and blood pressure cuffs to record the blood pressure at different levels in the limb.
A noninvasive peripheral vascular exam measures blood pressure and blood flow using sound waves created by a device called a doppler. You will have a test done while you rest and while you exercise on a treadmill. This test helps tell if there are blockages in the leg arteries. This test takes about 30 minutes when looking at leg veins, and 45 minutes or longer when looking at the leg arteries.
This non-invasive test utilizes ultrasound imaging to evaluate blood flow and detect possible blockages in the veins of the legs or arms. It is most often used to make sure that no blood clots are present in the veins.
Stress echocardiography is a test that uses ultrasound imaging to determine how the heart muscles respond to stress. It is mainly used to diagnose and evaluate coronary artery disease.
