Peripheral artery disease
Mikael Häggström [notes 1]
Peripheral artery disease is a narrowing of the arteries other than those that supply the heart or the brain. Narrowing in the heart is called coronary artery disease, and in the brain it is called cerebrovascular disease.
In the extremities, a previous examination of a vascular surgeon is preferable before medical imaging. MRI angiography is preferable for a general arterial screening.
