Get Screened for Stroke and Cardiovascular Disease Risk
Why should I get screened?
For 4 out of 5 people who have a stroke, the first symptom of any illness is the stroke.*
Screenings provide Peace of Mind or Early Detection
Carotid Artery Screening (Plaque)
Ultrasound evaluation of the carotid arteries that screens for buildup of fatty plaque — the leading cause of strokes.
Peripheral Arterial Disease Screening
Uses ultrasound and blood pressure measurements to check for peripheral arterial disease (plaque build-up) in the lower extremities.
Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA)
Ultrasound is used to screen for the existence of an aneurysm (enlargement) in the abdominal aorta that could lead to a ruptured aortic artery.
A quick and easy test using EKG electrodes placed on the arms and legs to identify the presence of an irregular heartbeat at the time of screening. Atrial fibrillation increases the risk of stroke by 5 times.
An ultrasound measurement of the shin bone to determine abnormal bone mass density.
