Ankle-Brachial Index (ABI) Test

Black tonometer and heart isolated on whiteAn ABI test is a simple, noninvasive test for diagnosing peripheral artery disease (PAD).  This test measures the blood pressures in your ankles and compares it to the pressures in your arms.  Cuffs are placed on your arms and legs, blood pressure readings are taken and the ABI score is calculated.  If the ABI numbers are out of normal range, the physician may start you on a treatment plan or refer you for further testing.

This procedure takes our staff approximately 20 minutes to complete.  The results provide valuable information to our physicians for proper diagnosis and treatment.
