In brief: Pressure testing
Some common tests used to diagnose claudication include: checking the pulses in your feet ankle-brachial index to compare the blood pressure in your ankles to the blood pressure in your arms doppler ultrasound, which monitors blood flow in the area affected magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or computed tomography (ct) angiography to show damage to blood vessels.
