Overview

Vascular screening allows you to be proactive about your health. Screening can be helpful for identifying vascular health issues that may otherwise go undetected. Vascular screening is a key component in stroke prevention and recognizing potential life-threatening ailments such as an abdominal aortic aneurysm or peripheral vascular disease. When these are diagnosed early-on, serious future health complications can be prevented.

Should I have vascular screening done?

If you are a member of a group that is at-risk of vascular disease, you should consult with your doctor about whether screening is recommended for you. This includes:

  • Age greater than 50
  • History of diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Obesity or physical inactivity
  • Smoking or use of tobacco products
  • Family history of stroke
  • Coronary artery disease or heart disease

If you are experiencing symptoms such as shortness of breath, leg pain, difficulty walking, or chest pain, you should report that to your doctor who can recommend appropriate tests.
