If you have vascular disease, it often doesn’t show symptoms until advanced stages. At CHI Franciscan, we can screen for vascular diseases before they become serious. You can take the first step to evaluating your vascular health by making an appointment for a low-cost vascular screening.
Who’s a candidate?
Talk to your doctor to find out if vascular screening is right for you. Generally, we recommend screenings for anyone age 50 and older, or younger if you have the following risk factors:
- High cholesterol
- High blood pressure
- History of smoking
- Family history of stroke, abdominal aortic aneurysm or heart or vascular disease
What to expect
Here’s what you can expect when you come in for a screening:
- We’ll perform the screening (or multiple screenings) in one of our advanced vascular labs.
- A vascular surgeon will examine the results.
- Your doctor will review the results with you to determine if you need treatment or further testing.
Vascular screenings we offer
Carotid artery disease screening
To check for any narrowing in your carotid artery.
Abdominal aortic aneurysm screening
To check your abdominal aorta, the main blood vessel that supplies blood through the abdomen.
Peripheral vascular disease (PVD)/peripheral artery disease (PAD) screening
To check for narrowing or blockages in your leg arteries.
