Arterial Intervention: Arterial intervention procedures utilize imaging technologies and, for certain procedures, a contrast dye to define and view the body's blood vessels. These procedures angioplasty and vascular stenting.

Ankle Brachial Index (ABI): Ankle Brachial Index (ABI) is a non-invasive test using multiple blood-pressure cuffs on your legs and one on your arm to indicate peripheral artery disease (PAD), a condition where the arteries in your legs or arms are narrowed or blocked. People with PAD are at high risk of poor circulation and leg pain with walking.
