Vascular Screening

Are you at risk?

Find out if you are at risk for common vascular diseases with a vascular screening. Vascular screenings can help catch any irregularities in your veins like buildup or plaque and potentially prevent issues before they get worse. 

→ Stroke

Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA)

Stroke

A stroke occurs when an artery that carries blood to the brain is narrowed by blockage.

Symptoms of a stroke:

→ sudden weakness or numbness on one side of the body
→ vision loss
→ speech loss
→ lack of coordination
The effects of stroke are a leading cause of long term disability. Blood vessels in the neck (carotid arteries) are checked for blockage using ultrasound.

what is an abdominal aortic aneurysm vascular screening

AAA

WHAT IS AAA?

Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm is an enlargement of the main artery in the abdomen.

HOW CAN AAA DEVELOP?

Aneurysms can develop silently and can burst, causing bleeding that could lead to death. Many people with Aortic Aneurysms don’t even know they have one.

TESTING FOR AAA:

The abdominal aorta is checked with ultrasound to look for a weakening or enlargement of the arterial wall.

PAD

WHAT IS PAD?

Peripheral Arterial Disease, also known as hardening of the arteries, reduces the blood flow to the legs due to blockages of the leg arteries.

PAD SYMPTOMS:

→ leg pain with walking

If left untreated PAD can lead to more severe conditions such as tissue loss or amputation. Blood pressures are taken from both arms and both ankles to determine if blood flow in the legs is reduced.
