Tests Performed 

The ABI-600CL system allows for all the forms of testing available in the Newman Medical line of ABI machines. Which includes the following:  

Bi-Lateral ABI Test 

This is the most basic form of ABI testing — to be conducted in persons 60 years and older (or people over the age of 50 with a history of smoking and/or diabetes.) The ABI-600CL system comes complete with an 8MHz doppler, cuffs, and a reporting software that processes the results of this exam. 

TBI Test 

Another form of testing for PAD, but TBI is conducted through the big toes and the arms rather than the ankles and the arms. It is used on patients with incompressible arteries (which suggest major calcification in the lower extremities.)  

Quick PVR Test 

An efficient non-invasive form of testing for PAD — lasts only for a couple of minutes and is much easier on the patient.  

Segmental ABI Testing 

A multi-level ABI examination. With the ABI-600CL, you can test for PAD with three-cuff ABI and TBI as well as four-cuff ABI and TBI.  

ABI Stress Testing 

A form of ABI testing that identifies PAD in patients that experience symptoms of the disease (claudication) but receive resting ABI results that are normal and negligible. For this examination, the patient is put through vascular exercise before being tested.
