Inspiring Health Vascular Screening
Offered every Wednesday morning at Brookings Health System, Inspiring Health Vascular Screenings consist of three separate exams that may save your life.
- Carotid Ultrasound: scans for the build-up of fatty blockages, or plaque, in the carotid arteries in the neck. This condition may lead to a stroke.
- Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm: scans for a ballooning of the wall of the abdominal aorta, or aneurysm, which may rupture and be fatal. Many people do not know they have this condition.
- Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD): uses the Ankle Brachial Index (ABI) to check for blockages, narrowing, and plaque buildup in the leg arteries. Abnormal results may indicate a high risk for coronary artery and peripheral arterial disease.
