Peripheral artery disease (PAD) is a common pathology that affects more than 200 million people worldwide. The prevalence of this pathology is estimated in France at 11% in patients over 40 years old. The Doppler arterial waveforms analysis is an important element to assess the hemodynamic state of a patient and contributes to the diagnosis of the pathology. A number of classifications have been proposed but their use varies from one university to another. We hypothesize that there is a great heterogeneity in the description of the arterial Doppler flow analysis. In addition, a new classification (Saint-Bonnet) has recently been proposed and we will evaluate the effect of the use of this one. The main objective is to evaluate the differences of terminology used when describing arterial Doppler waveforms.
The secondary objectives are: to understand the variations observed and expected (initial, continuous training, place of exercise ...) and to study the effect of a new classification on the heterogeneity of responses.

terminology used when describing arterial Doppler waveforms
- Differences of terminology [ Time Frame: through study completion, an average of 1 year ]Number of different terminologies used by the vascular physicians to describe the arterial flows
- Effect of a new classification on the heterogeneity of terminology used [ Time Frame: through study completion, an average of 1 year ]Comparison of the number of terminology used without classification and the number of terminology used with a classification (Saint-Bonnet)
- Variations of description of the arterial Doppler waveforms [ Time Frame: through study completion, an average of 1 year ]Significant difference in terms of heterogeneity by region or place of formation
