Radial artery: Was this study done because of a poor radial pulse or symptoms of forearm discomfort or low blood pressure on a wrist monitor? Low monophasic flow generally indicates arterial disease. However the study can be a false positive if you have a naturally very thin radial artery. Your vascular surgeon is best qualified to evaluate and advise you.
