In the past decades, peripheral arteries have represented a model for the comprehension of atherosclerosis as well as for the development of new diagnostic imaging modalities and therapeutic strategies. Peripheral arteries may represent a window to study atherosclerosis. Pathology has prominently contributed to move the clinical and research attention from the arterial lumen stenosis and angiography to morphological and functional imaging techniques. Evidence from large and prospective cohort or randomized controlled studies is still modest. Nevertheless, several emerging imaging investigations represent a potential tool for a comprehensive "in vivo" evaluation of the entire natural history of peripheral atherosclerosis. This constitutes a demanding assignment, as it would be desirable to obtain both single-lesion focused and extensive arterial system views to achieve the most accurate prognostic information. Our narrative review rests upon the fundamental pathological evidence, summarizing the rapidly growing field of imaging of atherosclerosis in peripheral arteries and presenting a selection of both currently available and emerging imaging techniques.
