In brief: Many tests

Through carotid (ultrasound) scan, nuclear stress test, stress echocardiogram, echocardiogram, pet scan, ct scan, mri, ankle brachial index test, peripheral ultrasound, ekgs.
These tests are only used after a thorough history and physical that provides the indications for the appropriate test(s).

In brief: A few ways

Your dr. Can do a physical exam and can check for evidence of blocked of hardened arteries, use a doppler ultrasound, measure blood pressure difference between your arms and legs, blood work for evidence of high cholesterol, stress test, ct scans, and mri.
The study type depends on location of the disease.
