Vascular Prevention & Screening

Prevention
Vascular disease can happen to anyone. While in many cases, your susceptibility to vascular disease may be genetic, several of the risk factors, such as high cholesterol, sedentary lifestyle and smoking are within your
control.

The vascular surgeons at St. Luke's Hospital are committed to providing the best care in treating vascular disease and understand that a key component is prevention. We offer several screenings which will help your physician identify and modify your risk factors for the disease.

Screenings
St. Luke's Vascular Lab is accredited by the Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Vascular Laboratories and is committed to high quality patient care through diagnostic imaging. We meet nationally-recognized standards on state-of-the-ar t ultrasound equipment.

Why Get Screened?
Early detection and proactive management of cardiovascular disease is a key part of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. We offer three types of vascular screenings to help detect vascular disease. They include:
  • Carotid Artery Disease screening
  • Peripheral Artery Disease screening
  • Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms (AAA) screening
All three screenings together last approximately 30 minutes and are painless procedures that use ultrasound technology. All exams are performed by registered vascular technologists. A board certified vascular surgeon will review your results. A preliminary report will be provided the day of your screening.

Risk Factors for Vascular Disease
You should consider a vascular screening if you have any of the following risk factors:
Important Facts About Vascular Disease
Stroke is the third leading cause of death in the United States. Significant plaque deposits which develop in the arteries in the neck (carotid), are a major cause of strokes. These deposits can be detected during a vascular screening.

Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms occur when the major blood vessel (aorta) in the body expands and balloons outward. Rupture of the aneurysm may be prevented if the aneurysm is detected early through vascular screening.

Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) occurs when plaque deposits block arteries in the legs. The condition can be painful when walking or at rest and also can cause wounds to heal poorly. Smokers, former smokers and diabetics are especially prone to PAD. PAD blockages can be detected during a vascular screening.

Payment & Scheduling
All three screenings (Carotid Artery Disease screening, Peripheral Artery Disease screening and Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms (AAA) screening) are available for $120. Screenings are not covered by insurance or Medicare. To schedule your screenings, please call 314-205-6074. Physician referral not required.
