Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in Australia.
Plaque can build up in your arteries over time, often without any symptoms, potentially leading to a stroke, arterial blockage or aneurysm. A vascular ultrasound scan provides an accurate insight into the current health of your arteries.
Do you have any of these risk factors?
- Smoker or ex-smoker
- Diabetes or insulin resistance
- High blood pressure
- Cholesterol problems
- Personal or family history of heart attack or stroke
- Sedentary lifestyle
- Painful cramps in the legs when walking
- Autoimmune disease
- Increased waistline
The Artery Health Check includes:
Carotid artery ultrasound scan to detect the build up of atherosclerotic plaque that may lead to a stroke. Unfortunately 1 in 6 people in Australia will have a stroke in their lifetime and every thirty minutes someone dies from a stroke. With early detection it may be possible to prevent a stroke.
Abdominal ultrasound scan to detect the presence of an abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA), a common condition which if undetected may lead to a fatal rupture.
Assessment of the peripheral circulation in the lower legs.
The Artery Health Check comprising all three tests costs only $200. Alternatively you may choose to have the carotid artery scan only, which costs $150.
All tests are performed by an Accredited Vascular Sonographer using the latest advanced diagnostic ultrasound technology.
