Carotid Artery Test

Carotid Artery Test

What is a Carotid Artery Test?

A Carotid Artery Test (or Artery Scan) can help people understand their risk for developing chronic conditions before symptoms are present… while they can still take action.

Why Choose Life Line Screening for an Artery Test?

At Life Line Screening we use ultrasound technology to look into your arteries, inclusive of your carotid artery, to identify plaque build-up which can contribute to stroke, heart disease, and aneurysms.

We screen for Stroke and Cardiovascular Disease risk with the goal of generating peace of mind or early detection.

80% of stroke and heart disease can be preventable –American Heart Association*

What's included?

Checkmark Carotid Artery Screening (Plaque)

Ultrasound evaluation of the carotid arteries that screens for buildup of fatty plaque — the leading cause of strokes.

Checkmark Peripheral Arterial Disease Screening

Uses ultrasound and blood pressure measurements to check for peripheral arterial disease (plaque build-up) in the lower extremities.

Checkmark Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA)

Ultrasound is used to screen for the existence of an aneurysm (enlargement) in the abdominal aorta that could lead to a ruptured aortic artery.

Checkmark Atrial Fibrillation

A quick and easy test using EKG electrodes placed on the arms and legs to identify the presence of an irregular heartbeat at the time of screening. Atrial fibrillation increases the risk of stroke by 5 times.

Checkmark Osteoporosis Risk

An ultrasound measurement of the shin bone to determine abnormal bone mass density.


"If I hadn't gone to Life Line Screening I never would have known that my arteries were blocked as much as they were. Doctors don't check this unless something is wrong. By the time I got two more opinions and then had to wait six months to go back to the last doctor I was 95 % blocked. They brought me soon after that. I could have had a stroke. This was the best decision I have ever made." –Noreen O.

"I had considerable blockage in my carotid arteries, and no symptoms. Thanks to Life Line Screening for sending me the postcard that probably saved my life." –Sheri Rowney
