Ankle-Brachial Index (ABI) 

  • The ankle-brachial index, or ABI, is a measurement of blood flow in your leg arteries.

  • Hardening of the arteries can cause a narrowing or blockage of the leg arteries. This is also known as peripheral arterial disease (PAD).

  • Symptoms of PAD may include a discomfort in muscles of the calves, thighs or buttocks that comes on with walking (claudication) and goes away after a few minutes of rest.

  • Sometimes, PAD can decrease leg blood flow without causing any symptoms at all. The ABI is the safest and most reliable test to find PAD.
