Get a Vascular Screening
What is a vascular screening?
A vascular screening is a three part non-invasive low dose diagnostic screening used in the detection of stroke risk, abdominal aortic aneurysm and peripheral artery disease.
Why is it done?
Over 700,000 Americans suffer a stroke each year. A large number of strokes can be prevented with proper diagnosis and treatment. An abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) screening detects if the wall of the artery has become weakened and distended. A ruptured aneurysm is life hreatening. Peripheral artery disease (PAD) occurs in the arteries of the circulatory system in the vessels that carry blood to the arms and legs. If the arteries become narrowed or blocked, blood cannot get through to nourish organs and other tissues, causing damage to the tissues and eventually tissue death.
How will I get results?
