Ankle Brachial Index Test (ABI)

What is an Ankle Brachial Index Test (ABI)?

Ankle Brachial Index Test (ABI) is a simple non-invasive test that compares the blood pressure in the upper and lower limbs using blood pressure cuffs. The test checks for peripheral artery disease (PAD). PAD is a common circulatory problem in which narrowed arteries reduce blood flow to your limbs. It can cause leg pain when walking and increases the risk of heart attack and stroke. The test takes approximately 10 minutes.

Your doctor might recommend an Ankle Brachial Index Test (ABI) if you have leg pain while walking or risk factors for PAD, including:

  • History of tobacco use
  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure

  • Restricted blood flow (atherosclerosis) in other parts of your body
