Ultrasound for Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD)

An ultrasound for peripheral arterial disease (PAD) evaluates the blood flow in veins and arteries of the legs and arms. An ultrasound uses a transducer, a handheld device, to check veins and arteries. The transducer is moved over the veins and arteries to be evaluated and pictures are created. This test is done to check for blood clots, hardening of the arteries or veins that are having problems in transporting blood.
