    Abstract

    A clinical trial was made of a new noninvasive technic for the measurement of arterial blood volume changes in a limb segment. The instrument employed is small, portable, provides a digital display in cc/min, is readily calibrated, gives reproducible values of the segmental pulsatile volume change and Pulsatile Flowz or PFz, and can then be used to screen patients with peripheral vascular disease and to assess postoperative results.
