On Tuesday, February 16, from 10:00am-5:00pm Aventura Hospital and Medical Center will host AngioScreen®, presented exclusively in South Florida by East Florida HCA. AngioScreen® is a simple, non-invasive vascular screening designed to provide you with information about your heart rhythm, neck and leg arteries, blood pressure, pulse and body mass index
AngioScreen® measures Ankle Brachial Index, a screening for blockages in the leg arteries that is normally not performed by doctors, unless patients are symptomatic. NO needles, pain or radiation.
Aventura Hospital and Medical Center members, guests, employees and the community are invited to participate in the screening. The screening is covered under flexible spending accounts. In addition to Angioscreen, guests are invited to hear special lectures on a variety of cardiovascular-related subjects from experts in the medical field. Enjoy light heart-healthy refreshments and visit our various booths providing useful resources and information to live a healthy lifestyle.
Immediately after your Angiosceen screening, you will receive a color ultrasound picture printout and digital record showing your risk of heart disease and stroke. There is also a consultation afterward with educational materials provided.
The basic screening is only $50 and includes the following tests: carotid artery ultrasound, blood pressure (both arms), ankle brachial index, body mass index, peak systolic velocity, heart rate and EKG. An abdominal aorta aneurysm screening may be added for an additional $30. You should share the results of the screening with your doctor.
