The vascular screening services at Jefferson Surgical Center help identify potentially serious conditions, such as strokes, aortic aneurysmal disease, carotid occlusive disease, and peripheral arterial disease.
These tests are especially valuable for individuals ages 55 and older, as patients at that age are at increased risk for developing heart conditions.
There are different methods of screening for strokes, aneurysms and vascular diseases, but all three of the tests can be performed at the same time.
Aortic Ultrasound Screening: This is a safe and effective screening method to examine the abdomen for aortic aneurysms, which can occur without any noticeable signs or symptoms.
Carotid Artery Ultrasound Screening: This test is performed to screen for carotid occlusive disease (CAD). Results can identify narrowing in either the left or right carotid arteries.
Peripheral Arterial Disease Screening: The most common of the three heart conditions, peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is tested by evaluating the circulation of your lower extremities to find any potential blockages in the arteries. PAD symptoms are characterized by leg pain or leg wounds that won’t heal.
These important screenings collectively take only 30 minutes to complete at Jefferson Surgical Clinic. Individual screenings cost $50, or you can have all three for $125.
