Vascular Health Screenings
Vascular screening can identify individuals who may be at risk
for stroke, ruptured aneurysm and/or arterial insufficiency in
the legs. Screening exams are performed by registered
sonographers on our medical staff.
Who Should Participate In This Program?
Persons age 55 or older with associated risk factors should
undergo screening. Vascular screening is useful in certain
high-risk groups. Associated risk factors include:
- High blood cholesterol
- High blood pressure
- Family history of stroke, heart attack, aneurysm or other
How Are The Screening Tests Done?
The screening evaluation consists of three simple tests:
Consists of a quick ultrasound evaluation of the arteries in
the neck which provides blood to the brain. A carotid scan can
determine whether or not there are blockages in these arteries.
Consists of ultrasound imaging and measurement of the abdominal
aorta, the body's main artery. The scan can determine if an
aneurysm is present and measure its size.
PAD (PERIPHERAL ARTERIAL DISEASE) SCAN
A Doppler exam for PAD involves determining the arterial
pressure in the arms and lower extremities. This exam can
identify reduced blood flow in the lower extremity arteries.
Why Should Vascular Screening Be Done?
Carotid artery blockages are the number one cause for TIAs
(Transient Ischemic Attacks) and stroke. These blockages can
restrict blood flow to the brain or break off and become lodged
in a brain vessel, causing a stroke.
AAA (ABDOMINAL AORTIC ANEURYSM) DETECTION
An aneurysm is a weakness or ballooning of the blood vessel
PAD is a blockage in the circulation to the arms or legs due to
atherosclerosis or other diseases, which may threaten the
limbs. PAD can impair circulation to the legs and lead to
serious disability or potential amputation.
The cost of vascular screening is $120. Vascular screenings are
covered under some insurance plans. Please contact your insurance
company for coverage details. Cash, check, charge and flex
spending accounts are also valid forms of payment.

location, contact Clint Sanders 817-250-4628.
