Vascular Screenings

Vascular screenings are used to detect serious vascular conditions like carotid artery disease, peripheral vascular disease and abdominal aortic aneurysm. These conditions, although they often do not present with any visible symptoms, can quickly become life threatening without warning. Vascular screenings allows for diagnosis of these conditions before they become dangerous, so treatment can reduce the risk associated with them.

Vascular screenings are offered to patients per their request. Call our office for more information if you have any of the following:

  • Smokers
  • Men and women over the age of 60
  • High blood pressure or high cholesterol
  • Diabetes
  • Family history of vascular disease

 

How does it Work?

Vascular screenings can be a combination that can include:

  • Carotid artery duplex imaging
  • Venous duplex imaging
  • Arterial duplex imaging
  • Aortic ultrasound
  • Ankle-brachial index

The choice of examinations will depend on the specific concerns of your physician and any symptoms you may be currently exhibiting. The entire screening may take an hour or two to complete, depending on the number of examinations ordered. Results from a vascular screening can alert your physician to potential problems that can be effectively treated while they are still in the early stages.
