Presented by Sharp Memorial Hospital plus

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. Register for a CardioHealth ultrasound and learn your risk of developing heart disease.

The CardioHealth ultrasound allows doctors to better assess risk and helps you take steps to prevent heart attack and stroke. With the pass of a wand, doctors can scan patients for hidden plaque build-up and increased thickness in the artery wall, both common signs of cardiovascular disease.

The heart attack and stroke screening includes:

  • 10-year-heart attack risk
  • Ankle-brachial index ultrasound to detect peripheral arterial disease (if indicated)
  • Blood glucose test
  • Body fat measurement
  • Body mass index (BMI) and hip to waist ratio
  • Cardiac c-reactive blood test for inflammation
  • CardioHealth carotid ultrasound
  • Heart-health consultation
  • Homocysteine blood test
  • Lipid cholesterol panel
  • Metabolic syndrome screening
  • Review of family history
  • SphygmoCor® XCEL technology, which includes blood pressure at and around your heart and an indirect measurement of arterial stiffness which provides information about the health of your arteries and risk for heart disease and stroke

Following your screening, you will receive a personal consultation to discuss your findings and answer any questions you might have. If needed, we will design a follow up treatment plan involving your primary care physician.

The CardioHealth ultrasound is offered as part of the vascular screenings and executive health assessments available at the Cushman Wellness Center at the Sharp Memorial Outpatient Pavilion.

Parking Information plus

We recognize that things do come up, so you may reschedule your appointment up to two times free of charge. Further attempts to reschedule may result in a $50 rescheduling fee.

What to Bring plus

Do not eat anything 12 hours prior to your screening. Please continue to take your regular medications and drink your normal amount of water, so that you will be well hydrated for your appointment. Please do not drink anything other than water and do not do rigorous exercise the morning of as it could affect your test results.
