Customer Question

list of all test that tell a doctor when to order test to arterial blockage! or aneurysms? blood clots is a d-rimer test. but what about the other 2? aren't there test to conclude to find and break away plaque before it get's to be a painful situation or emergency? my doctor doesn't feel it's necessary to order MRA/or CTA?? so what warrants them, what blood work do i ask for? And typically if i want to pay out of pocket for a scan and there aren't any risk why would a doctor say "no". kind of week don't you think???

Thank you for your question, ideally, blood CP, chest X rays, stress test,serum electrolytes, serum urea and creatinine levels are needed before CT angiogram.
