Vascular Screenings

Vascular screenings detect blockages in the circulatory system and are conducted using ultrasound technology. Screenings are designed for those who have not been previously diagnosed with vascular disease; therefore, a physician's order is not required. These screenings check for signs of:

  • Peripheral Artery Disease: a screening of the lower extremities for plaque build-up, often an indicator of heart disease.
  • Stroke: a screening of carotid arteries in the neck to detect plaque build-up, which can lead to a stroke.
  • Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm: a screening to detect weakened areas of the vessel that serves as the main channel of the circulatory system.

A physician's order is not required to schedule these screenings. Results will be sent directly to the patient to share with his/her physician. The cost is $45 per study or you may receive all three exams at a discounted price of $100. Payment should be made at the time of service, as most insurance providers do not cover screening exams.
