You will receive a personal evaluation of your circulation and vascular
health as well as clear and immediate test results of the following:
Carotid Artery Ultrasound
Carotid Artery Ultrasound shows the flow of blood in the carotid (neck)
arteries that go to the brain. A buildup of cholesterol (plaque) in
these arteries can increase the risk of stroke.
Ankle Brachial Index (ABI)
ABI tests for blockages in the arteries that go to the legs. These
blockages are called peripheral arterial disease (PAD) and can increase
the risk of heart attack.
Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA) Screening
AAA Screening tests for an expansion (aneurysm) of the abdominal aorta,
the main blood vessel that carries blood from the heart to the rest of
the body. As the aneurysm expands, it can burst and result in sudden
death. Aortic aneurysms usually do not have symptoms.
Peak Systolic Velocity (PSV)
PSV measures the rate of flowing blood through arteries and can
determine the severity of blocked arteries.
Heart Rhythm Electrocardiogram (EKG)
EKG provides an image of the heart’s electrical activity, which can
predict irregular rhythm and heart attack.
Body Mass Index (BMI)
BMI is a formula used to determine obesity. BMI can predict the risk of
high blood pressure, stroke, heart attack and diabetes.
Blood Pressure measures the work that the heart performs by driving the
flow of blood throughout the body. High blood pressure can lead to
kidney failure and accelerate hardening of the arteries.
