    Introduction: Cardiovascular disease (CVD) accounts for a significant percentage of global deaths and emphasizes the importance of early detection for prevention. Endothelial dysfunction serves as a reversible precursor of atherosclerosis and plays a crucial role in the development of complications such as heart attacks and strokes. Assessment of endothelial function using flow-mediated dilation (FMD) in the brachial artery utilizing noninvasive ultrasound imaging provides promising opportunities for early detection and intervention strategies in cardiovascular health
