You may not be aware you have vascular disease due to the lack of symptoms. Early detection and treatment is the key to reduce your risk for serious or even fatal conditions like stroke, heart attack or aneurysm. Clark Memorial Health offers a 30-minute, non‑invasive vascular screening using ultrasound technology in an accredited vascular laboratory.
This procedure does not require a physician referral. Results are available the same day as the screening and will be sent to your provider.
Three Tests are performed:
- Carotid Ultrasound
- Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Scan
- Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) Ankle Brachial Index (ABI)
Who should be screened?
Anyone over age 55 or anyone over age 40 who has multiple risk factors, including:
- Family history of heart disease or stroke
- History of smoking
- High blood pressure
- High stress levels
- Inactive lifestyle
- High cholesterol
The cost for a vascular screening is $142.
