A board certified Radiologist will interpret the screening Carotid and a report will be given.

Screening Aorta Ultrasound: This test is performed by lifting your shirt to access your belly. Warm ultrasound gel will be placed on your abdomen. The sonographer will assess your aorta, as much as is visible, from your heart to your lower belly. We visualize the aorta to rule out AAA (abdominal aortic aneurysm) or major blockages. A board certified Radiologist will interpret the screening Aorta and a report will be given.

Screening PAD Testing: This type of test is performed to determine whether you have circulation issues in your arms or legs. It is a screening tool to determine if there are blockages in the arms or legs causing blood pressure changes or diminished blood flow. An ABI (Ankle Brachial Index) will be performed. A board certified Radiologist will interpret this ABI and provide results in your screening report.
