- Stroke/Carotid Artery Screening: Strokes are most commonly related to plaque build-up in the carotid artery. This ultrasound test is performed by applying gel and a transducer along your neck to view the carotid arteries for blockage.
- Atrial Fibrillation: An ECG device is used to determine whether or not you have Atrial Fibrillation (AFIB), or an irregular heartbeat. Adults over 40 have a 1 in 4 chance of developing AFIB in their lifetime. A diagnosis of AFIB means that your risk for stroke increases five-fold.
- Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA) Screening: An abdominal aortic aneurysm is a "ballooning" of the wall in the abdominal aorta. The majority of people with AAAs have no symptoms. If an AAA ruptures, the mortality rate is 80-90 percent. More than 15,000 U.S. residents per year die of AAAs. The good news is that AAAs can be identified via an ultrasound screening.
- Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) Screening: Eight to twelve million Americans suffer from PAD. It is 4-5 times more likely that you will die from heart disease if you have PAD. Ultrasound technology is used to screen for PAD (plaque buildup in the arms and legs).
