Inflammation of an artery.Your doctor may order x-rays (radiographs), which are pictures of your bones and joints; they donot show cartilage, muscles, and ligaments. X-rays can reveal deformities and abnormalities.MRIs, or Magnetic Resonance Imaging scans, produce cross-sectional images of your body by using amagnetic field and radio waves. Precise information about bones, joints and soft tissues is provided.Very small changes in the body can be detected using MRI.Medications, physical therapy, and surgery are the three

methods. Analgesics,nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, counterirritants, disease-modifying antiheumatic drugs,biologics, and corticosteroids are all medications that may be recommended, alone on in somecombination, for arthritis treatment.
Diagnosis of Arteriosclerosis
arteriosclerosis is a condition that involves narrowing or hardening of the arteries. It occurs whencholesterol accumulates along the walls of the arteries and causes obstruction of the blood vessels.Arterial hardening mainly occurs when an individual has been on a diet with unhealthily high levels ofcholesterol. Blockages in the arteries can increase the risk of heart failure. In fact, this is one ofthe main causes of death in many urban societies today. High levels of cholesterol in the blood mayalso be associated with age and emotional stress.

If the CT scan is negative but a ruptured
aneurysm is still suspected based on clinical findings, alumbar puncturecan be performed to detectblood in thecerebrospinal fluid.Computed tomography angiography(CTA) is an alternative to traditional angiography and can be performed without the need for arterial catheterization. Thistest combines a regular CT scan with a contrast dye injected into a vein. Once the dye is injectedinto a vein, it travels to the cerebral arteries, and images are created using a CT scan. These imagesshow exactly how blood flows into the brain arteries.the treatment of arterial aneurysms has been limited to either surgical intervention, orwatchfulwaitingin combination with control ofblood pressure.In recent years, endovascular or minimally invasive techniques have been developed for many types of aneurysms.
Raynaud’s phenomenon
is a condition in which cold temperatures or strong emotions cause bloodvessel spasms that block blood flow to the fingers, toes, ears, and nose.Your health care provider can usually make the diagnosis by examining you and asking questionsabout your health history. However,vascular ultrasoundand a cold stimulation test for Raynaud'sphenomenon may be done to confirm the diagnosis.Different blood tests may be done to diagnose arthritic and autoimmune conditions that may causeRaynaud's phenomenon.Treatment options are dependent on the type of Raynaud's present. Raynaud's syndrome is treatedprimarily by addressing the underlying cause but includes all options for Raynaud's disease as well.Treatment of primary Raynaud's focuses on avoiding triggers.
Tests and diagnosis
To diagnose an
arteriovenous fistula
, your doctor will use a stethoscope to listen to the blood flowthrough the area where he or she thinks you may have a fistula. The blood flow through anarteriovenous fistula makes a sound similar to clicking or humming machinery (machinery murmur).If your doctor hears a machinery murmur, you'll have other tests to confirm that the murmur iscaused by an arteriovenous fistula. These can include:
Duplex ultrasound.
Duplex ultrasound is the most effective and common way to check for anarteriovenous fistula in the blood vessels of the legs or arms. In duplex ultrasound, an instrumentcalled a transducer is pressed to your skin. The transducer produces high-frequency sound waves,which bounce off red blood cells. A duplex ultrasound can estimate how fast blood flows bymeasuring the rate of change in its pitch (frequency).
Computerized tomography (CT) angiogram.
A CT angiogram allows your doctor to check yourarteries to see if blood flow is bypassing the capillaries. You'll receive an injection of a dye thatshows up on CT images, and the doughnut-shaped CT scanner will be moved to take images of theartery your doctor believes is narrowed. The images are then sent to a computer screen for yourdoctor to view.
