This $250 screening test includes the basic healthy heart screening plus:
- Echocardiogram (heart scan) - A noninvasive test often called an “echo,” uses high-frequency sound waves (ultrasound) to create images of the heart’s valves and chambers. This test helps your doctor check the pumping function of your heart - how your heart is beating - and detect problems in the heart muscle or valves.
- Stroke / Carotid artery screening - A noninvasive test to look for plaques that can cause a stroke.
- Abdominal aortic screening - A noninvasive test to look for an aneurysm.
- Peripheral arterial disease screening / ankle-brachial index (ABI) - a test to look for peripheral arterial disease (PAD). This is a measurement of blood flow at the ankle level to check for any blockages that may have developed in the arteries of your legs.
