Artery and Vein Care Screenings

Vascular disease is often silent and without symptoms. Early detection and prevention can improve your quality of life and may even save it. Fairview offers vascular disease screening in a nationally accredited vascular lab. A complete screening is painless and takes less than an hour. All tests are performed non-invasively (no needles).

Screening can help you avoid:

  • Heart attack
  • Pain in legs and loss of legs
  • Ruptured aneurysm
  • Stroke

Who should be screened?

Individuals with the following risk factors:

  • Diabetes
  • High cholesterol
  • Hyperlipidemia
  • High blood pressure
  • Obesity
  • Sedentary lifestyle
  • Smoking

Diagnosing vascular disease

Your family history, symptoms, medications and other risk factors all help in diagnosing a vascular disease. Several tests and imaging can also be used to provide your doctor with a clear picture of your cardiovascular health.

Diagnostic testing may include:

  • Arteriogram – an imaging X-ray that can show location, type and extent of blockage in an artery
  • Blood pressure and pulse checks in your limbs, often called ankle-brachial index
  • Treadmill test to show severity of symptoms, for example, with PAD
  • Ultrasound exams to view blood flow in arteries and veins
