Stroke Risk Screening

The Medical Center offers a non-invasive, painless screening for stroke risk as part of its Vascular Screenings. A Carotid Ultrasound scans the carotid arteries in the neck to detect plaque build-up, which causes 33 percent of strokes.

A vascular technician from The Heart Institute at The Medical Center performs the screening and reviews all results immediately on-site. The results are then sent to a board certified vascular surgeon at The Heart Institute for verification, and a report is sent to you and your physician.

Call (270) 796-3330 for appointment and further information.
