Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA)
An abdominal aortic aneurysm is a blood filled bulge or ballooning of the abdominal aorta. The AAA exam is a simple ultrasound screening to detect and measure if any aneurysms are present. When detected early, AAA can be effectively managed to reduce risk.
Ankle-Brachial Index (ABI)
Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) is a serious health condition characterized by narrowed or blocked arteries in the legs and/or arms caused by a buildup of fatty deposits (plaque). ABI is a test which compares the blood pressure in your ankles to the blood pressure in your arms. It is a safe and painless test that helps your physician determine if your legs are getting the proper amount of blood supply.
Carotid Intima Media Thickness (CIMT)
CIMT is a measurement of the intimal and medial layers of the carotid artery and provides a visual image of the plaque in the artery wall. CIMT can detect an accelerated disease process, refine CVD risk, and can help optimize prevention measures.
A carotid duplex scan is an ultrasound test that shows how well blood is flowing through the carotid arteries.
An echocardiogram is a 30 to 45 minute diagnostic test that uses ultrasound waves to produce images of the heart muscle and heart’s valves. An echo study looks at how blood flows through the heart chambers, heart valves, and blood vessels. An echocardiogram allows visualization of cardiac structures, cardiac walls and the velocity of blood flow at certain points in the heart.
An EndoPAT (Peripheral Arterial Tone) test is a non-invasive evaluation of the overall health of the endothelium. (The endothelium is the inner lining of all blood vessels). Normal endothelial function protects the blood vessels from atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) and plaque buildup.
An electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG) measures the electrical activity of your heart. An EKG can be used to measure the rate and rhythm of heartbeats, the size and position of the heart chambers, the presence of any damage to the heart’s muscle cells or conduction system, and the effects of cardiac drugs.
