Vascular Screening Tests
There are several screening tests which identify individuals at risk for atherosclerosis, or hardening of the arteries.
Ozark Surgical Group offers vascular screening tests at our clinic by Mike DeMass, a licensed vascular technician. He will perform the tests and the results will be reviewed by one of our surgeons.
The cost is $99.00. Insurance does not pay for this test. The tests will include:
- Carotid (neck) artery ultrasound, to detect narrowing of these arteries
- Abdominal aortic ultrasound, to detect for aneurysm or blood vessel enlargement
- Doppler blood pressure measurement (blood flow) of both legs
If an abnormality is detected, patients are welcome to make an appointment for further diagnostic work-up with this clinic or another facility. Patients will receive a written copy of the results, and we will share results of these tests with any physician you request.
Please contact our appointment desk to schedule a vascular screening at a time that is convenient for you.
