Radiology / Imaging diagnostics

An interview with dr. Francesconi


Vascular problems (distension and narrowing) affect arteries and veins of the whole body. These issues, when concerning the arteries, are known as arteriopathies and can develop progressively but without any particular symptoms. Therefore, the issue will be detected only when it is already in an advanced stage.

Specialistic evaluation and aimed tests allow diagnosing the problem and modifying the natural history of the disease, which, if neglected, can cause serious complications such as: strokes, ischemia, or hemorrhages due to the rupture of an aneurysm.

Angiology specialistic evaluation concerns the study of the two sectors of blood circulation: arterial and venous. The purpose is to treat an already evident disorder, but also to prevent potentially fatal complications of vascular diseases that have not yet become evident.
