Vascular checks offered at 5 sites

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 be from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on:

• Jan. 8 at Centegra Hospital – Woodstock, 3701 Doty Road.

• Jan. 10 at Centegra Hospital – McHenry, 4309 Medical Center Drive.
