Stroke screenings are another life-saving ultrasound exam our team of sonographers perform. By using ultrasound technology, our team can detect health concerns that could lead to a stroke. Similar to our cardiac examinations, our stroke screenings have helped save lives by uncovering hidden health issues.
Although strokes are more likely for people who are inactive and have high blood pressure and cholesterol, stroke screenings are important for anyone over 40, especially if their family has a history with having strokes. As with our other diagnostic care, early detection is a necessary step in preventing strokes. Having a stroke can have life-altering effects or cause death, but detecting the warning signs of a stroke through an ultrasound screening can help prevent a stroke, and detection can be an impetus for focused treatment from your care provider to prevent future potential strokes.
It is recommended to have a stroke screening every 1-2 years, especially if you are at a risk of strokes. At Transmed, our team of sonographers offer quality, comfortable ultrasound screenings that deliver care providers with necessary readings to determine their patient’s risk of having a stroke. Our team at Transmed knows how important screenings are. We have helped many patients with screenings that alerted them to potentially life-altering health concerns. Through our screening services, early detection has provided many patients with necessary care which has improved the quality of their lives by preventing strokes.
