Approximately 8 to 12 million people in the United States suffer from peripheral artery disease (PAD). PAD causes narrowed arteries and reduces blood flow to the lower extremities. People with PAD begin to experience discomfort and pain while walking. Untreated PAD can lead to ulcers, gangrene, and amputation. Before experiencing those severe conditions, detection of narrowing blood vessel enables early diagnosis and treatment. Therefore, accurate and timely diagnosis is necessary.
