Diagnostic Imaging Screenings – 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Carotid Artery Scan $25
Painless 10 minute test to show any problems (plaque build-up) in the carotid arteries. These arteries, located in the neck, supply the brain with blood flow. Over time, build-up of plaque on the artery walls can begin to restrict this blood flow, possibly causing a stroke. This scan can also detect early signs of plaque buildup.

Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Scan $25
Painless test consists of a small Ultrasound probe moved across the abdomen to detect ballooning of the aorta, also known as an aneurysm.

Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) Test $25
PAD or hardening of the arteries is a condition that restricts the blood flow to the legs. A small Ultrasound device is used to measure blood pressure in the legs to check for poor circulation to the legs.

All Three Diagnostic Imaging Screenings $65

Cardiac/Heart Health* – 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Cardiac Risk/Proactive Chem 14 – $18
For accurate testing, please refrain from eating or drinking 12-14 hours before testing. Sips of water are acceptable
These tests along with other risk factors such as age and sex can help determine whether you have a slight, moderate or high chance of having a cardiovascular event such as heart attack or stroke. This profile of tests measures cholesterol and triglycerides, evaluates good (HDL) and bad (LDL) cholesterol as well as checking the status of your kidneys, liver, electrolyte and acid/ base balance, blood sugar and blood proteins. These tests monitor hypertension and kidney or liver-related side effects from specific medication. If you have a history or family history of high lipids or just want to know risk estimates, this is a good screening and monitoring test for you.
