Stroke Screening/Carotid Artery
Plaque buildup is an abnormal collection of calcium and cholesterol on the artery walls. Block carotid arteries can restrict blood flow to the brain or creak off and become lodged in a blood vessel resulting in a stroke. Through ultrasound technology, we can scan the carotid arteries along each side of the neck to detect narrowing or blockages. Early detection will all you to take an appropriate course of action that may reduce future risk.
Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA) Screening
An abdominal aortic aneurism is a ballooning of the wall in the abdominal aorta most often caused by plaque buildup. Noticeable symptoms of an AAA are uncommon and you may never know you have it. Early detection can increase your survival rate by 50 percent or more compared to emergency treatment after a ruptured aneurysm.
Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) Screening
Peripheral arterial disease mainly affects the arteries located in arms, legs and feet. When fatty deposits build up in the inner linings of the artery walls, blood flow is restricted. PAD often goes undiagnosed until painful symptoms start. Detection could also help prevent future heart attack and stroke.
Osteoporosis Risk Assessment
Osteoporosis is a disease in which bones become fragile and more likely to break. Men and women 55 years and old are at greater risk for osteoporosis, but it can occur at any age. Poor diet and lack of exercise can contribute to an osteoporosis diagnosis. Early detection allows physicians to start appropriate treatment.
