Vascular disease is the leading cause of death worldwide and the leading cause of heart attack and stroke. We believe that our integrated vascular screening can help change your vascular fate by providing information about your carotid arteries and circulation on which you can act. Such actions can help lower your risk of heart attack or stroke. Vascular screening results provide a benchmark of your vascular disease risk which can be reviewed by a medical educator and further interpreted by your physician.

The carotid arteries carry blood to the brain. Narrowing of the carotid arteries increases your risk of stroke. Thickening of the inner lining of the carotid arteries, which is how plaque begins, is correlated with blockages of the heart’s arteries. 15% of all strokes occur because of plaque in the carotid artery.
A color printout of photos of your carotid (neck) arteries included in a vascular screening ultrasound can be compared to images like the sample healthy artery and with samples of arteries with varying degrees of blockage shown here:
