In brief: Ankle Brachial Index
When interpreted by an experienced physician, the ankle brachial index (abi) along with toe pressures and arterial waveforms is the best noninvasive indicator of poor circulation.
In fact, decreased abi is a predictor of death, heart attack, and stroke and is a good way to identify people with vascular disease who may benefit from lifestyle change and medical treatment. See your doctor.
