The Scottsdale Healthcare Vascular team features experts in diagnostic imaging who are specially trained to detect abnormalities in the vascular system and whose practice focuses specifically on vascular disease. These vascular imaging specialists are board-certified in vascular medicine, vascular surgery, general radiology and are fellowship trained with additional specialization in vascular procedures.
To accurately diagnose peripheral artery disease, specialists rely on noninvasive tests that use cuffs similar to those used to measure blood pressure. These tests can be performed during a regular office visit.

- Carotid stenting
- Peripheral stenting
- Stent grafts for abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) and thoracic aortic aneurysms (TAAs)
