ABI-BOSO measurement

This examination is prescribed by the doctor, if there is a suspicion of constriction or blockage of arteries in the limbs (ischaemic disease). This may happen where the patient suffers symptoms such as pain during walking, if she or he has to stop after few meters because of pain, has cramps in her/his legs, cold toes, or – in an advanced stage of the disease – discoloured toes.

The examination is very simple and painless. Blood pressure measurement is provided automatically at the same time at each of all four limbs and lasts one minute. From the results of these measurements the ankle-brachial pressure index is calculated, which indicates the possibility of ischaemic disease. The results are available electronically and printed.
