Risk-assessment screening tests vascular health

Find out about your vascular health quickly during screenings at Abrazo Arizona Heart Hospital this month.

Abrazo Health will provide AngioScreen vascular risk assessment screenings from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 3, Wednesday, Feb. 12, Thursday, Feb. 20, and Wednesday, Feb. 26, at the hospital at 1930 E. Thomas Road.

This exam evaluates people’s heart rhythm, as well as their neck and leg circulation, blood pressure and fitness and takes about 10 minutes. You will receive a confidential print-out of the results with photos of the carotid ultrasound and a nurse will provide a brief consultation to explain the results. Participants are encouraged to follow-up after that with their physician.

The screening costs $59. You are encouraged to check with your health insurance plan to determine whether AngioScreen might be covered as one of your wellness benefits. Medicare will not cover this service.
