Types of P.A.D. Screenings
The best way to detect and prevent complications from vascular disease is to participate in a vascular screening. These screenings are painless and only take 30 minutes. You will receive your results right after the screening. If we detect an issue that requires prompt attention, Dr. Ganti will be contacted immediately. Otherwise, a nurse from Saint Agnes Hospital will provide you with recommendations for follow-up or physician referral. Your primary care physician will also receive your test results.
The free screenings we provide are:
Carotid Artery Ultrasound
To detect plaque and/or arterial narrowing that may increase the risk for stroke.
Abdominal Aortic Ultrasound
To determine the size of the abdominal aorta and detect aneurysms.
Ankle-Brachial Index (ABI)
To compare the blood pressure at the ankle with that in your arm to determine if there is significant lower extremity arterial narrowing or blockage; to detect peripheral arterial disease.
