Heart & Vascular Screenings

Genesis Heart & Vascular Services offers you painless, potentially lifesaving screenings to assess your risk for stroke, abdominal aortic aneurysms and other vascular diseases. They are performed by highly trained technologists using ultrasound, and are interpreted by a Radiologist.

Lifesaving Screenings

15,000 Americans die from Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms each year.

These screenings can determine your risk for heart disease, which is the number one cause of death in the United States for both men and women.

Stroke/Carotid Artery Screening

This screening visualizes the buildup of fatty plaque in the carotid arteries that can lead to stroke.

Risk Factors
High blood pressure, smoking, high cholesterol, diabetes, obesity, physical inactivity, family history, transient ischemic attack (TIA's)

Sudden weakness or numbness on one side of the face, arms or legs. Sudden loss of vision or slurred speech, sudden dizziness or severe headaches. TIA's (mini stroke).

Atrial Fibrillation (Heart Rythym)

An easy test using EKG electrodes to identify the presence or absence of an irregular heartbeat

Risk Factors
High cholesterol, high blood pressure, heart disease, smoking, excess weight, caffeine, alcohol abuse, sleep apnea, family history

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.
