What is a Carotid Artery Test?
A Carotid Artery Test (or Artery Scan) can help people understand their risk for developing chronic conditions before symptoms are present… while they can still take action.
Why Choose Life Line Screening for an Artery Test?
At Life Line Screening we use ultrasound technology to look into your arteries, inclusive of your carotid artery, to identify plaque build-up which can contribute to stroke, cardiovascular disease, and aneurysms.
We screen for Stroke and Cardiovascular Disease risk with the goal of generating peace of mind or early detection.
80% of stroke and cardiovascular disease can be preventable –American Heart Association *
See below for the components of our screening package.
Carotid Artery Screening (Plaque)
Ultrasound evaluation of the carotid arteries that screens for buildup of fatty plaque — one of the leading causes of strokes.
Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA)
Ultrasound is used to screen for the existence of an aneurysm (enlargement) in the abdominal aorta that could lead to a ruptured aortic artery.
Peripheral Arterial Disease Screening
Uses ultrasound and blood pressure measurements to check for peripheral arterial disease (plaque build-up) in the lower extremities.
A quick and easy test using a 6-lead EKG designed to identify Atrial Fibrillation. Electrodes are placed on the arms and legs. Atrial fibrillation increases the risk of stroke by 5 times.
