The brachial artery bifurcates to form the radial artery and ulnar artery in the cubital fossa at the level of the radial neck, below the bicipital aponeurosis 1. Supply. The brachial artery supplies blood to the muscles of the upper arm by its branches and to the forearm and hand, by its continuation as the radial and ulnar arteries.
Brachial artery. The brachial artery, which is the continuation of the axillary artery, terminates in the cubital fossa by dividing into the radial and ulnar arteries. The profunda brachii accompanying the radial nerve is one of its major branches.
Brachial Artery Ultrasound Imaging: A Repeatability Study. Experimental: Brachial artery ultrasound imaging Brachial artery ultrasound imaging is a non-invasive procedure for detecting endothelial dysfunction by measuring the flow-mediated dilation of the brachial artery using high resolution continuous electrocardiogram-gated B-mode (2D)
In this technique, a human subject rests supine and the diameter of the brachial artery is measured in a longitudinal plane. A blood-pressure cuff is used to produce ischemia in the limb. Following release of the blood pressure cuff the diameter of the artery is measured again.

The ultrasound technique uses ultrasound imaging to measure how a blood vessel in your arm, the brachial artery, responds to a change in blood flow. The change in size of the blood vessels relates to how well the vessels can respond to a change in blood flow.
Ankle/Brachial Indices (ABI) Ultrasound. Your doctor has requested an ultrasound of your groin, arm and ankles to analyze the blood flow in your arteries. Ultrasound is a procedure that uses sound waves to “see” inside your body. This procedure is performed to evaluate possible narrowing of the blood vessels, resulting in symptoms including.
• Ultrasound is capable of visualizing detailed anatomy of the structures surrounding the brachial plexus; for those performing interventional procedures (e.g., brachial plexus blocks), such knowledge significantly enhances safety and success.
Most common patterns of nerve location around the axillary artery in ultrasound-guided axillary brachial plexus block. DISTRIBUTION OF ANESTHESIA. The axillary brachial plexus block (including the musculocutaneous nerve) results in anesthesia of the upper limb …
Duplex ultrasound was used to image upper extremity dialysis access anatomy and estimate access VF within 1 to 2 weeks of the procedure. Correlation of brachial artery VF with dialysis access conduit VF was performed using a standardized duplex testing protocol in 75 patients.

The ultrasound probe should be manipulated at different angles to ensure an optimal image of the subclavian artery, brachial plexus, ﬁrst rib, and pleura. Be prepared to abandon this approach for an alternative because of overlying arterial branches.
Spectral Doppler waveform of the left ulnar artery. All the arteries, starting from the left axillary artery, the left brachial artery, the left ulnar and radial arteries all show a tardus parvus pattern suggesting a high-level severe stenosis, possibly at the level of the left subclavian artery.
