There are treatments that can save the lives and limbs of these patients once the disease is recognized.

"The signs and symptoms of PAD often go unnoticed, and as a result many patients are not being properly diagnosed. We are in serious need of new, innovative tools to aid in the diagnosis and management of this life- threatening condition," said Dr. Cooke.
