Description:

What are Cardiovascular Screenings?

This three-part screening is offered to detect any potential cardiovascular diseases. These tests are painless, non-invasive, and comprised of the following screenings:

Carotid Artery Disease/Stroke Screening

  • This test uses a Doppler to measure blood flow in the carotid arteries of the neck.
  • It will detect blocked circulation to the brain. 

Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Screening

  • This screening uses an ultrasound to measure the size of the large blood vessel (aorta) in your abdomen.
  • It will detect if you have an aneurysm, which is when the lining of the aorta is enlarged within the abdomen.

Peripheral Arterial Disease Screening

  • This test measures the pressure in your arms and legs by performing blood pressures with a small ultrasound device.
  • It indicates how well blood flows to the legs.

There is a $65.00 fee that includes all three screenings and pre-registration is required. For more information and to register, please contact the Bayhealth Education Department at 302-744-7135 or 1-877-453-7107.
