Cardiac Screenings

You can select one or more of the available screenings:

Carotid Artery Evaluation

Plaque in the carotid arteries can reduce blood flow to the brain and may increase the risk of stroke. It is also a marker of heart attack risk. During an internal carotid artery evaluation, an ultrasound probe is placed on your neck to determine the presence of plaque or blockages.

Cardiac Function Evaluation

An ultrasound probe is placed on your chest to evaluate heart function and calculate your ejection fraction, the amount of blood pumped out of the heart during each beat.
15 minutes

Ankle/Brachial Index

Blood pressure is recorded from both ankles and arms to screen for peripheral vascular disease. The Ankle Brachial Index evaluates blood circulation to the legs and is also an indicator of heart attack risk.
15 minutes

Baseline Electrocardiogram (ECG)

A noninvasive recording of your heart’s electrical activity, this test uses electrodes to detect overall heart rhythm. Because an ECG is the best way to measure and diagnose abnormal heart rhythms, it’s wise to have a baseline screening around age 40.
15 minutes

Abdominal Aorta Evaluation (requires fasting)

Abdominal aortic aneurysm is a localized enlargement of the abdominal aorta. Most aneurysms are asymptomatic. However, a ruptured aneurysm is one of the leading causes of death in males over 65, particularly in those who have smoked, have a family history, or those with atherosclerotic vascular disease. An ultrasound is a highly specific, non-invasive test which measures the size of your abdominal aorta.

Cardiac Calcium Score

Left untreated, coronary arterial plaque may cause blockages and heart attacks. As plaque builds, so does the level of arterial calcium. A multi-slice CT scanner measures the degree of calcification in the arteries that supply blood to the heart, and in this way can assess future cardiac risk.
