In brief: Usually start with..

Dopplers of the lower or upper extremities.
Its easy and inexpensive. If this is abnormal then i usually proceed to a cat scan with contrast to define the anatomy.With this information i decide if a catheter and a stent or angioplasty vs a surgical bypass is needed..
