  • Complete cardiovascular ultrasound screening for carotid artery disease and peripheral artery disease. (Abdominal aneurysm screening is standard in some)
  • Echocardiography
    Cardiac stress testing with stress echocardiogram or nuclear scanning
  • Coronary CT calcium scoring – this is an abbreviated CT scan of the chest that can detect calcifications on the arteries of the heart that may indicate coronary artery disease.  Insurance does not cover this service, therefore $ 300 will be due the day of the visit.
