According to the American Heart Association, 50% of men and 64% of women who die suddenly of Coronary Vascular Disease have no previous symptoms. Early detection is crucial for proper treatment for sustained recovery.

There is an approach that detects meaningful disease and allows for monitoring of efforts to address hardening of the arteries. It is noninvasive, takes about 15 minutes and is covered by most insurance companies.

It will tell you whether you are forming plaque, the lesion that is present in almost all heart attacks and strokes. And it is used in research to assess the effects of treatments offered to treat vascular disease of the heart, brain and other organs.

This approach is called Carotid Intima Media Thickness scanning. We offer it to determine which patients need more proactive measures to PREVENT heart attack and stroke. We use Vasolabs, a provider whose commitment to consistent process gives me the confidence to rely on their results in making treatment recommendations. It is an enhancement of carotid duplex that provides more information that affects efforts to slow or regress atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries).
