Vascular Extremity Evaluation

A lower extremity arterial evaluation is a non-invasive diagnostic procedure that compares the blood pressure in a patient's legs to the blood pressure in his or her arms.A lower blood pressure in the leg could be a symptom of peripheral arterial occlusive (peripheral vascular) disease. The test evaluates the presence, severity and general location of this disease.
