12), (13) When systemic involvement of atherosclerosis is considered, the assessment of the peripheric arteries using a non-invasive method such as flow-mediated dilatation (FMD) provides accurate information, and this method is now used for the evaluation of ECD of the brachial artery with Doppler ultrasonography (US).
