The 15-Minute Test that Could Save Your Life
Ultrasound screenings have proven to be safe and accurate at detecting dangerous blockage or buildup that may result in a stroke.This is a non-invasive ultrasound test, meaning no needles or injections, and it quickly detects blood flow abnormalities.
What We Do
We provide carotid artery ultrasound evaluations of the carotid arteries that screens for buildup of plaque - one of the leading causes of strokes.
The Carotid Artery
Your brain is supplied with oxygen-rich blood from two large carotid arteries located on your neck.These arteries can become clogged due to plaque build-up, which can restrict the blood flow to the brain.If these arteries become blocked, irreparable long-term disabilities, such as dizziness, paralysis, vision, or speech difficulties may occur.
Healthy Carotid Artery
Blood flow is unrestricted
No plaque built up in the artery
Healthy arteries decrease likeliness of stroke
Blocked Carotid Artery
Blood flow is restricted
Plaque built up in the artery
Increased likeliness of stroke
