Vascular Screenings

Know Your Risk for Vascular Disease

Your veins and arteries send blood throughout your body and are vital to your health. With a vascular screening from Sanford Health, you can know the condition of these vital pathways. This simple, painless screening will help identify if you are at risk for a stroke, aortic aneurysm or peripheral artery disease (PAD).

The Vascular Screen is recommended every three to five years for those who are at risk for vascular disease or have a personal or family history of cardiac disease, heart attack or stroke. Type 1 diabetics should get screened at age 30 or older.

Risk for factors for vascular disease include:

  • Diabetes
  • High cholesterol
  • High blood pressure
  • Obesity
  • Sores on feet or legs that are slow to heal
  • Aching, cramping or paint in the arms, legs, thighs or buttocks while exercising
  • Family history of Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA)

Vascular screening includes:

  • Stroke/carotid artery ultrasound
  • Abdominal aortic aneurysm ultrasound
  • Ankle/brachial index
  • Venous screening

These tests are painless and do not require you to undress, exercise or draw blood. The cost per screening is $50 or less and varies by location. Get a discount when you get the heart screen and vascular screen together.
