For many people, getting screened is the first step in early intervention to prevent potential health events later in their lives. It helps people understand their risks so that they can consult with their doctor and take the right steps towards a healthier future. Life Line Screening provides comprehensive, preventative screenings to help community members understand their risk for heart disease and stroke.
The conditions for which Life Line Screening tests are considered "silent killers" because they often strike without warning. Symptoms are rarely present and if they are, they are generally subtle, almost unnoticeable. In fact, four out of five people who have had a stroke showed no apparent warning signs prior to their attack. A simple screening could prevent death or disability.
Life Line screenings include:
- Carotid Artery Screening
- Atrial Fibrillation Screening (Afib)
- Peripheral Arterial Disease Screening (PAD)
- Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Screening
- Osteoporosis Screening
