The easiest and least expensive method to test for Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD).

8-10 million Americans have PAD.  Without proper treatment, 30% are likely to die in 5 years of PAD-related heart attack or stroke.  PAD is a condition in which fatty deposits build up on the inner linings of arteries, and restrict the flow of blood to muscles and organs; especially the kidneys, stomach, arms, legs and feet.  A PADnet test measures the blood volume in the patient’s extremities by using a series of blood pressure readings.  This non-invasive test can be completed in 15-20 minutes at CMMC.  This vascular test can also check for Peripheral Venous Disease (PVD) – a general term for damage, defects or blockage in the peripheral veins, most commonly found in the arms and legs (like varicose veins and chronic venous insufficiency).
