HEART ATTACK AND STROKE SCREENING
Life, Inc. provides full body scans as well as heart attack/stroke and cancer scans.
experts agree that most Heart Attacks and Strokes can be prevented if detected early.
All of our tests are painless, safe and involve no radiation, no blood tests and no needle injections. During the testing you will be able to see pictures of your heart, arteries and organs in “real
time” via ultrasound.
STROKE – CAROTID ULTRASOUND SCAN
“Looks” inside the carotid arteries to detect early signs of soft and hard plaque
STROKE – CAROTID DOPPLER BLOOD FLOW ANALYSIS
Sound waves listen to the blood flow in your carotid arteries to check if there is reduced
circulation to the brain.
HEART ATTACK – ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY
This 2 dimensional image of your heart “looks” at your heart, its muscles, valves
and its chambers for fatty deposits and other abnormalities which cause heart failure.
This test uses ultrasound to “look” and detect potential or existing heart problems caused by coronary
artery disease or heart attack.
HEART M-MODE (Measures the motion of your heart)
Determines the size of your heart, thickness of the heart muscles and any enlargements of
the heart chambers.
ARM & LEG ARTERIAL DOPPLER
Sound waves “listen” to the blood flow in the arteries which carry the blood from
the heart to the hands and feet. This test can also give early indications of Adult Diabetes.
LEG VENOUS DOPPLER BLOOD FLOW
Checks the blood flow in the leg veins, which carry the blood back to the heart.
DEEP VEIN THROMBOSIS
This test checks for blood clots in the large veins in the legs (phlebitis). Left undetected, these clots may dislodge, travel from the legs to the lungs or heart causing death.
Medical experts also agree that early
diagnosis of cancer (Stage 1 and Stage 2) provide an individual with a higher survival rate than cancers that are diagnosed
in Stage 3 or Stage 4.
All of your test results will be explained
to you in terms that you understand. You can also receive a copy of your test
pictures upon request.
This series of tests uses ultrasound to look at all abdominal
organs and thyroids for masses and/or cysts that could be cancerous. Diseases or abnormal conditions will be ruled out of
