Lifeline Screening is the place to go if you are looking for preventative health screening. They offer three main types of screening options, including ultrasound screenings, finger-stick blood screenings, and electrocardiograph screenings.
The ultrasound screening, also known as a sonography, uses sound waves in order to map out structures within the body. It was first developed in World War II and it is a widely used way to monitor an d detect medical conditions in ophthalmology, obstetrics, and cardiology. It is also very commonly used to visualize the fetus during pregnancy. This type of preventative screening is not only painless, but is also non-invasive. Lifeline Screening uses an advanced Doppler color flow ultrasound technology to provide reliable and accurate images. Ultrasound screenings are ideal for bone mineral density screening, ankle-brachial index screening, carotid artery disease screening, and abdominal aortic aneurysm screening.
Finger-stick blood screenings are ideal for identifying the risk factors for heart disease and diabetes. Finger-stick blood screenings are ideal for lipid panel screening, glucose screening, protein screening, and liver screenings.
Limited electrocardiograph screening is used to detect atrial fibrillation, or an irregular heartbeat. It is crucial to do this test in order to detect a irregular heartbeat because it can greatly increase the risk for stroke. That is why they will also conduct and EKG which is an electrode screening that is quick, and non-invasive. It also does not require the removal of clothing.
