The ankle brachial index in people with and without diabetes: Intra-tester reliability
from Journal of Foot and Ankle Research
The ankle-brachial index is widely used for determining the presence and severity of peripheral arterial disease, and current guidelines suggest it should be used to monitor possible progression in affected individuals. It is therefore important that the technique demonstrates adequate reliability for repeated measurements. Existing studies suggest that the ABI is reliable in the general population however, there is a lack of evidence for the reliability of the ABI in people with diabetes.
