Brachial Ultrasound
Ultrasound technique to test for elasticity of the brachial artery after a release of a restriction placed on the upper arm for a period of time. This is a proposed diagnostic test for Cardio Vascular Diseases - CVD.

CVD forms: Cerebral embolism: a blood clot formed in one part of the body and then carried by the bloodstream to the brain, where it blocks an artery. Cerebral hemorrhage: bleeding within the brain resulting from a ruptured blood vessel, aneurysm, or head injury. Cerebral thrombosis: Formation of a blood clot in an artery that supplies part of the brain.
