About Our Screens

SafeHeart’s cardiovascular screens test for early risk of stroke, heart attack, peripheral vascular disease and abdominal aortic aneurysm. All five screens are non-invasive, require no disrobing, and are painless. SafeHeart Health Screens has developed a unique screening procedure that enables participants to have all five screens done in one location and in under 15 minutes. SafeHeart Health Screens’ reporting procedure enables us to have Results Reports to screening participants within 14 days. Prices for all five screens range from $119 for a closed corporation/organization screening to $129 for an open community screening. These costs are significantly less that what would be charged in a hospital or clinic setting.

Five Screens to Good Health

SafeHeart’s screens test for early risk of stroke, heart attack, peripheral vascular disease and abdominal aortic aneurysm.

Carotid Artery Disease Screen
The Carotid Artery Disease Screen uses ultrasound and Doppler technology to screen for plaque buildup and blockages in the carotid arteries. Carotid artery disease is the leading cause of stroke. In addition, the presence of even minimal carotid artery plaque is associated with a much higher long-term risk of cardiovascular disease.

Carotid Intima Media Thickness Screen
The Carotid Intima Media Thickness Screen uses ultrasound technology to obtain a measurement of the thickness of the wall of the carotid arteries. Carotid artery thickness (CIMT) is a validated non–invasive method to assess for early atherosclerosis. An abnormal CIMT is associated with an increased risk of heart disease and stroke.

Abdominal Aorta Aneurysm Screen
The Abdominal Aorta Aneurysm Screen uses ultrasound technology to evaluate for an abnormal enlargement of the abdominal aorta. Aortic aneurysms are usually asymptomatic until advanced when a rupture can be a catastrophic event.

Atrial Fibrillation Screen
The Atrial Fibrillation Screen uses a rhythm strip analysis to evaluate the presence of atrial fibrillation, a common and often asymptomatic abnormal heart rhythm, which can lead to blood clot formation in the heart chambers leading to increased risk of stroke. Approximately 15% of strokes are a result of atrial fibrillation.

Peripheral Vascular Disease Screen
The Peripheral Vascular Disease Screen measures the Ankle-Brachial Index (ABI) to evaluate for decreased circulation to the lower extremities. Persons with abnormal ABI and peripheral vascular disease have a higher risk of heart disease and stroke.
