Testing

Early Detection is Vital

In most cases, with early detection, vascular disease can be treated effectively. Strokes due to carotid disease can be prevented if diagnosed early and medical treatment is undertaken. There are several simple screening tests that detect problems, all of which are non-invasive and painless.

Who Should be Screened for Vascular Disease?

Anyone over the age of 60, plus people with these risk factors:

  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Smoking
  • High blood cholesterol
  • Family history of atherosclerotic problems and circulatory problems

Carotid screenings can determine whether different forms of the disease are present

  • Aortic Aneurysms
  • Cerebrovascular disease
  • Chronic venous diseases (e.g., varicose veins)
  • Deep Vein Thrombosis (blood clots in the veins that can travel to the lungs)
  • Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD)
  • Renal artery disease (circulatory disorders of the kidney)
  • Stroke

Estimated costs for each test - $39, combination of  AAI/ABI, Abdominal & Carotid - $112.
