An ankle brachial index (ABI) measurement compares the blood pressure in your arm to the pressure at your ankle. It helps determine how well your blood is flowing from your heart to your feet. A toe brachial index (TBI) measurement may be required to take additional blood pressure readings at the toes. These exams are performed as a stand-alone procedure, without imaging, when requested by your health care practitioner.
We do our best to have our radiologists interpret the information and forward the results to your doctor by the next business day.
This exam is covered under your Alberta Health Care Plan. It is not currently offered at our Saskatchewan clinics.
Please ensure that you bring your requisition with you to your appointment.
