This screening is for Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD), carotid artery (large blood vessels in your neck) disease and abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA, the large artery in your abdomen). This program will give you information on these areas and screen you for possible problems. The screening process is very simple. A certified vascular technologist will take blood pressures in your arms and ankles for PAD screening, perform an ultrasound of your carotid arteries (neck) and abdominal aorta (stomach area), and ask you questions about your health. You may participate in any or all of these areas.
To register for a PAD screening, you can call us directly at 814-877-5265.
