Depending on your symptoms and risks, your primary care physician may order one or multiple diagnostic vascular tests. Some of the most common vascular screenings include:

  • Carotid Artery Disease (CAD) Ultrasound – This test examines the arteries in the neck that supply blood to the brain and looks for an unstable or dangerous plaque in the neck that could lead to a stroke.
  • Peripheral Arteria Disease (PAD)l Exam – This test looks at the arteries that go to the legs to make sure there are no blockages in the arteries.
  • Ankle Brachial Index (ABI) – By measuring the blood pressure in the arms vs. the legs, your doctor checks to see if there is a lack of blood circulation to the legs or feet.
  • Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA) Ultrasound – This vascular test looks at the aorta through the stomach to make sure there is no aneurysm.
  • Renal Artery Duplex Scan – This scan examines the arteries in the kidneys to make sure there is no blockage, which could result in high blood pressure.
  • Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) Ultrasound – This ultrasound looks at the veins in the legs to rule out the presence of blood clots.

Vascular diagnostic screenings are painless and minimally-invasive. The average length of a vascular screening is approximately 30 minutes.
