Feel Like Yourself Again
- Diagnosing Vascular and Arterial Disease
Vascular diseases don’t always have obvious symptoms, and when you feel an unusual pain or cramp, you might be tempted to push through it. But an early diagnosis of vascular diseases like peripheral arterial disorder or peripheral vascular disease is the best step you can take toward a healthier, brighter future. The specialists at AdventHealth are here to help you get started.
Your physician can answer your questions about your risk of developing a vascular disease and will advise you on how often you should visit for regular screenings. Our network is equipped with the latest diagnostic technology, so if something does feel wrong, we’ll help you find clarity through tests including:
- Ankle-Brachial Index (ABI)
- Blood Tests (Including Cholesterol, Triglycerides, and Diabetes)
- Computed Tomography (CT) Angiography
- Computed Tomography (CT) Scan
- Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Angiography
- Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Scan
- Physical Exam
- Caring for a Range of Vascular Diseases
Your vascular system is complex, and so are the conditions that affect it. But the team of vascular specialists at AdventHealth is here to help you understand your condition with an accurate diagnosis, reduce your symptoms with vascular disease treatment, and help you feel like yourself again.
Within our network, you’ll have access to experts in vascular disease, with deep experience in treating conditions such as:

If you’re concerned about your chances of developing a vascular disease, your physician can discuss risk factors with you and offer advice about simple, healthy lifestyle changes. Smoking, high blood pressure, and family history can all play a role, so it’s never too early to come in for a test.
- Leading-Edge Vascular Disease Treatment
A vascular-disease diagnosis can make it feel like your whole life is going to change.

This can help you lower your blood pressure and reduce your symptoms, but it’s about more than that — it’s about helping you live a happier, stronger, more confident life.
