Which of the following arteries is usually evaluated during a physical examination of the peripheral vascular system?

The pulse of the dorsalis pedis artery, or dorsal artery of the foot, is evaluated during a physical examination of the peripheral vascular system. Dorsalis pedis pulses may be palpated with the feet slightly dorsiflexed
