Comprehensive cardiac screenings

Heart disease is largely preventable. Routine cardiac screenings can help you better understand your cardiovascular disease risk and uncover hidden issues earlier, so you can take steps to improve your heart health and prevent a heart attack or stroke. Endeavor Health Cardiovascular Institute offers a range of comprehensive cardiac screenings, including:

  • Carotid artery disease (CAD) screening: This test uses ultrasound imaging to identify signs of CAD by evaluating blood flow.
  • Complete cholesterol test: This blood test is also called a lipid panel or lipid profile.
  • CT scan/Heart scan: This scan produces high-resolution images of your heart to detect the early buildup of calcium in the coronary arteries, the most common cause of heart disease. 
  • Echocardiogram: Using an ultrasound, this test provides a look at the structure and function of your heart.
  • EKG: Using electrodes placed on your skin, this test gives details about the electrical signals and rhythm of your heart.
  • Peripheral artery disease (PAD) screening: This simple assessment uses the resting ankle-brachial index (ABI) to determine your potential risk for PAD.
  • Stress test: This assessment evaluates how well the heart works under physical stress.

Because each patient has a unique risk of cardiovascular disease, ask your Endeavor Health Medical Group physician or other healthcare professional which screenings you need and when you should begin making them part of your wellness checkup.
