Vascular screenings are a great way to proactively manage your health. In under an hour, and for just $99, you will receive three non-invasive tests to assess your risk. Your results will be read and explained to you by a vascular specialist who will then navigate you to the best resources for follow-up care.
The following non-invasive tests are included in your screening:
- Carotid ultrasound: A painless test that uses ultrasound waves to evaluate the buildup of fatty plaque inside the two carotid arteries in your neck. Too much plaque in a carotid artery can cause a stroke.
- Abdominal aortic ultrasound: A painless test that uses ultrasound waves to detect the presence of an aneurysm (a balloon-like bulge) in the abdominal aorta that could lead to a rupture in the artery.
- Ankle-brachial index (ABI): A simple test that compares blood pressure in your ankle and arm to show how well blood flows in your limbs.
