Free Vascular Screenings: February 18 & March 20
Shore Physicians Group will host vascular screening clinics on Tuesday, February 18 and Friday, March 20 at the Shore Physicians Group Vascular Lab at 649 Shore Road in Somers Point. Good screening candidates are adults over age 45 with other risk factors for vascular disease, including diabetes, smoking, hypertension, abnormal cholesterol profiles, and/or family history.
- ABI Screening—A quick, painless and accurate test that will provide early detection of symptoms of peripheral arterial disease (PAD). It compares the blood pressure in your ankle with the blood pressure in your arm, which produces an ankle brachial index (ABI).
- Carotid Screening—Provides ultrasound images of the carotid arteries on both sides of the neck. Checks for plaque build-up (narrowing) in the arteries which could eventually lead to a stroke.
- Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA) Screening—Provides ultrasound images of the aorta in the abdomen. Checks for weakened and bulging areas in the aorta, the major blood vessel that supplies blood to the body.
To book your screening, call Tracy at 609.365.6239.
