Focus

Preventive Cardiology offers a wide range of screening programs to identify potentially life-threatening conditions that affect the blood vessels in the neck, abdomen and legs. 

These non-invasive ultrasound tests detects abnormal blood flow and size of the artery. One test measures the thickness of two arterial walls and can give the patient a "vascular age." 

Cardiovascular risk factor counseling is provided after each test to help patients reduce risk for future heart and vessel events.
