Peripheral Vascular Disease (PVD) can affect the arteries, the veins or the lymph vessels. The most common and important type of PVD is peripheral arterial disease (PAD), which is a condition similar to coronary artery disease and carotid artery disease. In PAD, fatty deposits build up in the inner linings of the artery walls. These blockages restrict blood circulation, mainly in arteries leading to the kidneys, stomach, arms, legs and feet.

Techniques that ARA offers to diagnose PAD include ultrasound, angiography and magnetic resonance imaging angiography (MRA). Additionally, our interventional radiologists can provide an angioplasty for the blockage(s) when lifestyle modifications alone are not sufficient.
