What is a stroke, abdominal aortic aneursym (AAA) & PAD Screening?
A screening is a method of finding disease in people who do not yet show signs and symptoms of the disease. The goal of the screening is to provide you with information that can help you take better control of your health.
The stroke, AAA and PAD screening is a quick and painless way to give you information about your vascular health. A physician with expertise in vascular disease will provide you and your primary care physician with the results of your screening within one week. If further follow-up is recommended, this information will be provided to both you and your primary care physician.
- Stroke remains the 3rd leading cause of death in the U.S, and 4 out of 5 people have no apparent symptoms or warning prior to a stroke. *
- Thousands die each year from rupture of an abdominal aortic aneurysm. At least 95% of these can be successfully treated if detected prior to rupture. *
- Estimates are as high as 1/3 of older Americans have some form of peripheral arterial disease (PAD). Difficulty walking and/or pain in the calf area of your legs could mean the onset of serious issues in the arteries of your legs. *
