New Test to Diagnose the Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD)

n the MRI then took readings of the phosphocreatine level in the legs every 15 seconds for several minutes afterward. 'If the blood flow is poor,' Kramer explained, 'PCr recovery is slow, because the muscle is not getting the energy sources it needs to restore PCr. It is an energy-dependant process.'

Right now, doctors use several tests to measure PAD severity, including measuring blood pressure in the ankles and comparing it to blood pressure in the arms. Doctors can also do an angiogram of the artery, using dye to show where blockages exist. But, Kramer said, 'if you are following a patient over weeks and months, you don’t want to do multiple angiograms if you don’t have to, and certainly not x-rays or CT scans because of the radiation and contrast dye involved.' Yet another reason this new test may be so valuable.

Kramer said people with peripheral arterial disease often have coronary and cerebrovascular disease as well. The risk factors for PAD include smoking, high blood pressure, high lipids and diabetes. People with PAD generally have pain in the calves when they exercise. Those with severe disease can have pain at rest and tissue loss, including ulcers.
