“Vessel” is a generic term for arteries, veins, and lymphatic vessels, and arteries and veins are called “blood vessels.” Vascular disease is comprised of arterial disease (diseases of cerebral/carotid arteries, aorta, and arteries in the abdomen/kidney/periphery, etc.) and venous disease (e.g., deep venous thrombosis). With an increase in arteriosclerotic disease in recent years, methods for diagnosing arterial disease that are noninvasive and minimally invasive have been attracting more and more attention. Because arteries are located throughout the body, attention must be paid to all organs in the body as well as to the characteristics and specificity of arteries when diagnosing arterial disease. This report is aimed at providing a standard method for ultrasound assessment of “aortic and peripheral arterial lesions,” which are forms of arteriosclerosis that are on the rise in association with aging and lifestyle-related diseases (e.g., diabetes mellitus, dyslipidemia, hypertension, smoking, obesity). We have to know the details of vascular diseases and examine them by vascular ultrasound according to the standard method.
