Ultrasound Screening

We understand that sometimes we put others in front of our own needs. But we also know that having a healthy body enables us to enjoy more life experiences that are important to us. Our screenings allow for patients to be proactive about their health. The preventative health screenings we conduct go beyond regular checkups to provide you and with valuable information about your health. You’ll be able to get information you need to take action to prevent chronic disease before it’s too late.

In addition to medical laboratory screenings that we perform we offer ultrasound assessment of your body.

These screening assessments can help us easily identify risk for stroke, heart attack or liver disease.

Our office is proud to offer ultrasound assessments for diagnosis and screening.

Our ultrasound screening exams include:

  • Carotid Artery Screening (Plaque)

  • Ultrasound evaluation of the carotid arteries that screens for buildup of fatty plaque - the leading cause of strokes

  • Peripheral Arterial Disease Screening

  • Uses ultrasound and blood pressure measurements to check for peripheral arterial disease (plaque build-up) in the lower extremities.

Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm

Ultrasound is used to screen for the existence of an aneurysm (enlargement) in the abdominal aorta that could lead to a ruptured aortic artery.

Peripheral Venous Disease

We use ultrasound to a screen for blood clots in your legs. These clients can easily travel to your legs creating a life-threatening condition known as pulmonary embolism

Abdominal Organ Disease:

This ultrasound test can assess for conditions such as fatty liver. This problem results from accumulation of fat and can cause liver failure. In addition we can screen for pancreatic diseases.

We also utilize diagnostic ultrasound to assess complaints such as abdominal pain or swelling, dizziness, chest pain, leg swelling or shortness of breath. It is also useful for evaluating your thyroid and new lumps or bumps.


Echocardiography is a diagnostic test that uses ultrasound to create an image of the heart muscle. Ultrasound can show the size, shape, and movement of the heart's valves and chambers as well as the flow of blood through the heart. Echocardiography may show such abnormalities as poorly functioning heart valves or damage to the heart tissue.
