Vascular imaging of the arterial outflow may be necessary to identify appropriate targets for intervention, and for ongoing surveillance following intervention.
Contrast arteriography remains the gold standard for the evaluation of the threatened limb. A complete, bilateral study of the aorta, iliac, femoral, popliteal, and run-off vessels should be performed in patients who are expected to undergo revascularization, provided there are no contraindications.
Your doctor may recommend an arterial evaluation for common associated symptoms such as: 1) pain in the calf, thigh, or buttock brought on with activity and relieved with rest 2) atypical leg pain, or constant pain in the forefoot aggravated by elevation and relieved by dependency 3) Non-healing wound/ulcer 4) skin discoloration.
