Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) Screening

Contact Information


(608) 263-7420

It's as easy as taking your blood pressure to find out if you have peripheral arterial disease (PAD).
Individuals with PAD have four times the risk for heart attack than those without PAD. UW Health Heart and Vascular Care offers a non-invasive test that checks the blood flow in your legs to look for peripheral arterial disease.
Who Should Be Tested?
This screening is appropriate for men and women age 70 and older with a history of:
  • Coronary artery disease
  • Diabetes mellitus
  • Smoking and hypertension

Screening Information


Each screening is evaluated by a UW Health physician who specializes in vascular disease. Patients receive their preliminary test results immediately following the scan from a registered vascular technologist.


Screenings are offered on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays, by appointment. Each screening is $70 and more than one test can be scheduled in one appointment. To schedule an appointment, call UW Health Preventive Cardiology at (608) 263-7420.
