Hello, .

Lower and Upper Extremity Arterial Exam

Common Reasons For Testing

What to Expect

This test evaluates the arterial circulation in the arms and legs and indicates if there is blockage. A Doppler is used to obtain waveforms and blood pressure cuffs are placed at different locations. Pressures and waveforms are taken. Severity and the general location of disease can be determined. IF the reason for testing is pain in legs while walking, the patient may walk on a treadmill for 5 minutes. Following exercise, more pressures are taken. Some discomfort from the inflation of the cuffs may be felt. The exam takes 30-45 minutes.
