CRYSTAL LAKE – Learn about the risks for heart disease or a stroke with a vascular screening available on the Centegra Wellness on the Move mobile health unit.
Centegra’s vascular screening program provides immediate preliminary results on these tests: ultrasound images of the carotid artery to detect plaque buildup; ankle brachial index measurements to detect blockage risk and peripheral arterial disease; heart rhythm EKG readout to detect atrial fibrillation; risk level for abdominal aortic aneurysm; and body mass index, pulse and blood pressure numbers.
All results are confidential. Follow-up reports completed by a Centegra Health System radiologist are mailed to the patient within a week so they can be shared with a physician.
Screenings will take place from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on the following dates:
• Tuesday at Centegra Hospital-Woodstock, 3701 Doty Road
• Oct. 18 at Centegra Physician Care-Spring Grove, 1906 Holian Drive
• Oct. 24 at Centegra Physician Care-McHenry, 4309 Medical Center Drive
The cost is $129 for all tests.
Centegra also offers additional comprehensive screening packages that include all the tests provided within the vascular screening plus an echocardiogram, a full lipid panel, glucose testing and more.
