Exercise the arm and see what happens. If the same thing happens with
exercise that happens with cuff ischemia... the radiologist is wrong. I
think the 70 mm pressure gradient between both arms says it all. But once
you did the cuff hyperemia you proved the patient has a steal. Don't know
what more he wants !!!!!!
