Ankle Brachial Index (ABI)

A test that measures the blood flow to the legs to look for peripheral vascular disease.

The ABI or ankle brachial index measures the flow of blood in the arteries supplying the legs. It is used to detect evidence of blockages (peripheral vascular disease). This test is done by measuring blood pressure at the ankle and in the arm while a person is at rest.

The ABI test is administered at the Radiology Consultants offices.
