A Consensus Statement Developed by the Standards Division of the Society of Interventional Radiology ABIs as high as 1.10 are normal; abnormal values are those less than 1.0. The majority of patients with claudication have ABIs ranging from 0.3 to 0.9. Rest pain or severe occlusive disease typically occurs with an ABI lower than 0.50. Indexes lower than 0.20 are associated with ischemic or gangrenous extremities. Sacks D., MD et al; J Vasc Interv Radiol 2003; 14:S3892 © 3M 2010. All Rights Reserved.
