Stroke/Carotid Artery - This screening visualizes the buildup of fatty plaque in the carotid arteries that can lead to stroke. Risk factors include high blood pressure, smoking, high cholesterol, diabetes, obesity, physical inactivity, family history, and transient ischemic attack (TIA's). Symptoms include sudden weakness or numbness on one side of the face, arms or legs, sudden loss of vision or slurred speach, sudden dizziness, severe headaches, and TIA's (mini stroke).

Risk factors include high cholesterol, high blood pressure, heart disease, smoking, excess weight, caffeine, alcohol abuse, sleep apnea, and family history. Symptoms include heart sensations sometimes called palpitations, which may include irregular thumping or pounding heartbeats, a feeling the heart is racing, chest discomfort or pain, fainting or light-headedness, fatigue, shortness of breath or weakness.

Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm - This screening visualizes the existence of an auerysm in the abodminal aorta that can rupture and be fatal. Risk factors include family history, smoking, high blood pressure, and being a white male. The vast majority of people are without symptoms.
