OVERVIEW

Stroke, renal artery stenosis/aneurysm, portal vein hypertension, peripheral artery disease (PAD), and abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) are considered to be most serious, non-cardiac related vascular diseases. Early detection from our vascular screening specialists can help prevent life- threatening conditions or long-term disabilities. BEI Vascular Ultrasound screening is a noninvasive, simple 30-minute exam as low as $45 self-pay. Patients do not have to have an order or script for a simple vascular screening. The vascular screening will help you see a clear picture of your blood vessels, looking for plaque buildup to prevent a person to be at risk for aneurysm, stroke or other related vascular diseases.
