A simple blood pressure test can help determine if you are at risk for serious health conditions, including heart attack, stroke, kidney failure and peripheral arterial disease.
A simple blood test helps determine your risk for heart disease. The test measures each type of cholesterol and your blood sugar level. By fasting before this test, you get an accurate measurement of your HDL ("good cholesterol") and LDL ("bad cholesterol")
This type of ultrasound exam lets us observe how your heart functions. It helps detect signs of heart disease or abnormalities of the heart muscle and valves.
Three non-invasive and painless screening tests detect vascular problems.
Carotid scan – We use an ultrasound to scan the carotid artery in the head and neck and a blood pressure check to identify severe hypertension. These exams can detect the most frequent cause of stroke – significant internal carotid artery stenosis.
Aortic scan – This ultrasound scan checks the aorta, the body’s main artery. We use the scan to identify a bulge in the artery – called an aneurysm – that needs treatment.
PAD scan – An ultrasound exam helps us determine if you have any impairment in the circulation to your limbs. The exam also can identify blockages in the leg arteries, tell the severity of the blockage and determine if you need treatment for peripheral arterial disease.
