Sanford Health will hold heart and vascular screens at Murray County Medical Center on Monday and Tuesday, Oct. 22-23, 9 am – 5 pm, for a discounted rate of $25 each.
The Heart Screen
The Heart Screen uses advanced tools and diagnostics to uncover critical details about patients’ hearts. The screening is recommended for anyone aged 40-75, and includes the following:
- CT calcium score
- Non-fasting cholesterol
- Blood pressure
- Body Mass Index (BMI)
- Framingham Score (risk estimate for developing heart disease in the next 10 years)
The Vascular Screen
The Vascular Screen examines details about the health of the patient’s vascular system. The vascular system consists of arteries and veins which circulate oxygen and nutrients throughout the body and remove waste. The screening is recommended for patients ages 40 and older, although people with type 1 diabetes should be screened at age 30 and older. The screen includes:
- Stroke/carotid artery ultrasound
- Abdominal aortic aneurysm ultrasound
- Ankle/brachial index
