When comparing pulse examination to CTA results, the clinical assessment of pulses had a sensitivity of 74.
Furthermore, the indication for CTA and the pulse examination are different in certain cases; for example, a patient with a decreased pulse had mechanism of injury as indication and therefore the results are presented separately as per indication and pulse examination.
Traditional diagnosis for PAD consists of a thorough pulse examination and verification of the ankle-brachial index (ABI).
