Cardiovascular Screening in Tulsa, Ok

Cardiovascular Imaging is where we image areas of the body such as the aorta, carotid, and arteries in the legs known as PAD (Peripheral Artery Disease).

We use an Ankle Brachial Index to check your arteries in your legs for plaque buildup or hardening of the arteries. 

The Cardiovascular Package consists of Aorta screening, Carotid screening, and the ABI test.

Each test we do in the cardiovascular package consists of the Aorta, Carotid, and an ABI, also known as the “Ankle Brachial Index” test.

Each test takes about 15 mins a piece.

The disease we usually see is plaque buildup in the arteries.

The reason this is so critical to get checked is because plaque can break off and go to the brain, causing a stroke.

Here's what we will check

Aorta:

The aorta is the main artery that comes from your heart and supplies your body with blood.

We check for an aneurysm, which is a bulging in the artery that can rupture and be fatal, and the survival rate is very low.

Anyone over the age of 50 who is a smoker, has diabetes, or a family history of heart problems needs to have this screening.

Carotid artery:

The carotid artery comes from your heart and supplies your brain with blood. We check these arteries to make sure there isn’t a narrowing of your artery called stenosis of the artery. That is where blood can’t go to the brain. Plaque from that stenosis can break off and cause a stroke.

If you have stenosis of the artery, the blood flow goes through the artery at a higher rate and with more force, which can make the plaque break off and go to the brain and cause a stroke.

ABI (Ankle-Brachial Index):

An ABI checks the arteries in your legs for plaque buildup. We check these arteries to make sure there isn’t a narrowing of your artery called “stenosis of the artery.” Plaque from that stenosis can break off as well, causing a stroke.

If you have stenosis of the artery, the blood flow goes through the artery at a higher rate and more force, which can make the plaque break off and go to the brain and cause a stroke.

The plaque from the legs can break off and also go to other areas of the body such as fingers and toes and cause them to not get blood flow and cause the fingers or toes to turn black and die.
