Vascular Screening - Arterial - JDL

When plaque builds up in your arteries, it can harden and slow the blood flow to your organs. Often there are no symptoms, but this condition can be life-threatening. 

Our non-invasive ultrasound screening only takes about 15 minutes and can detect stroke risk factors and the existence of an aneurysm by checking the blood flow in your neck, abdomen and ankles.
