Through these preventive screenings, the risk of having a stroke can be greatly reduced. They are fast, accurate, painless and low-priced, and they involve the use of ultrasound technology while also scanning for potential health problems.
All four screenings use ultrasound technology and take less than an hour to complete. They include the Stroke/Carotid Artery Screening, which helps detect abnormal collection of plaque, calcium and cholesterol buildup on the artery walls, the Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA) Screening, which detects ballooning or rupturing of the wall in the abdominal aorta, the Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) Screening, which detects plaque buildup in the arms and legs, and the Osteoporosis Screening, which checks for abnormal bone mass density in men and women.
A complete wellness package including the Stroke/
Carotid Artery Screening, Ab-dominal Aortic Aneurysm Screening, Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) Screening and Osteoporosis Screening will cost only $129. Pre-registration for the screenings will be required.
Since its establishment in 1993, Life Line Screening has become the nation's leading provider of quality vascular health screenings. More than 85 ultrasound teams are on staff to travel to different communities, bringing the screenings to a variety of people everywhere. These non-invasive, inexpensive and painless ultrasound tests help people identify their risk for a stroke, vascular diseases or osteoporosis early enough for their physician to begin preventive procedures.
