Preventive Screening Services
While it’s estimated that about 80 percent of all strokes have no warning signs, most strokes can be avoided with preventive vascular screenings. Non-invasive technology allows our vascular surgeons and technicians to see inside arteries and blood vessels to determine if there are blockages or plaque buildup that can put you at risk for aneurysms, stroke, heart disease and other life-threatening vascular illnesses. Preventive vascular screenings allow you to be proactive about your health and provide peace of mind.
At White Square Vascular Surgery, we use state-of-the-art ultrasound and Doppler equipment to provide the highest quality of personalized care, in our comfortable, spacious, private exam rooms. Each test typically takes about 20 minutes.
Our certified technicians work closely with our vascular surgeons to assess the results and provide a course of treatment when necessary. You will receive your test results within 2 days.
Preventive procedures are often covered by insurance providers. We will coordinate care with your referring physician and work with your insurance provider to ensure that you receive the best possible treatment and optimal healthcare benefits. We accept most major healthcare insurance, including Medicare and Medicare.
Preventive Screening Services We Offer
We provide a variety of preventive screening options to detect your risk of aneurysms, heart disease, stroke and other vascular conditions.
Abdominal aortic aneurysm screening
Ultrasound screening for an abdominal aneurysm that could lead to a ruptured aorta. We also provide surveillance for aortic stents and aortic open repairs.
Artery, bypass graft and stent screening
Ultrasound screening of the upper and lower extremities to identify narrowing of the vessels. We also provide surveillance for bypass grafts and stents.
Deep vein thrombosis screening
Ultrasound scan of the upper and lower extremities to evaluate varicose veins, as well as detect deep vein thrombosis and superficial vein thrombosis. We provide varicose vein treatments onsite in an outpatient setting.
Dialysis graft and fistula evaluation
Monitor dialysis access such as catheters, fistulas or grafts, for blood clots.
Mesenteric ischemia screening
Ultrasound scan to detect bowel disease or abdominal aneurysms that are the result of narrowing or blockages in the abdominal area that cause an interruption of intestinal blood flow.
Renal artery stenosis screening
Ultrasound scan that examines the renal arteries, which deliver blood to the kidneys, and measures blood flow. Renal artery disease, including narrowing (stenosis) due to atherosclerosis, can result in reduced blood flow to the kidneys and hypertension. Renal artery stenosis is the most common correctable cause of hypertension.
Peripheral artery blockage screening
Ultrasound scan that evaluates peripheral arterial disease in the lower extremities, which increases the risk of heart disease.
Stroke prevention screening
Ultrasound scan of the carotid arteries that screen for buildup of fatty plaque, a leading cause of
