You may add any of the following preventive cardiology services to your executive health package:
Carotid Doppler Exam
This screening test is a non-invasive, ultrasound study that will detect any narrowing of your carotid arteries. Artery stenosis (clogging) can lead to a disabling, unannounced stroke, a leading cause of death and disability in the United States.
Complete abdominal screening
This ultrasound screening is your first diagnostic line of defense in detecting abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA), which can be fatal. Major risk factors for AAA include being a male, a history of smoking, and age 65 or older. Other lesser risk factors include family history, coronary artery disease, claudication, hypercholesterolemia, hypertension, cerebrovascular disease, and increased height. A screening abdominal ultrasound is an accurate test for AAA, with 95 percent sensitivity and near 100 percent specificity.
Peripheral artery screening
Peripheral artery disease is a condition similar to coronary artery disease. It is most common in the arteries of the legs and pelvis. The ankle brachial index, a ratio of ultrasound-recorded pressures in the lower and upper extremities, is a simple and accurate non-invasive test for the screening and diagnosis of peripheral artery disease. The ankle brachial index has demonstrated greater accuracy than other available methods of screening for this important health concern.
CT Calcium Scoring – Electron Beam Computed Tomography
Sophisticated cardiac imaging technology that measures the presence and extent of calcium in your coronary arteries. This provides the most accurate “picture” available of your current risk for future heart disease. The EBCT scan is fast, painless and non-invasive.
