Can I have ankle-brachial index screening if I have blood clots in my legs?

A Answers (1)

  • No. If a participant has a history of blood clots and is unsure if the blood clots have been resolved, we require a note from his or her physician stating that the participant has no known blood clots in the legs. We cannot perform the screening without this verification.
