Hospital to Hold Vascular Screenings
New Britain [June 07 2007] -
The Vascular Center at The Hospital of Connecticut will hold vascular screenings 9 a.m.–5 p.m., by appointment only, June 19 and 21 at the New Britain General campus.
The $50 screening fee covers two ultrasound screenings, an ABI (Ankle Brachial Index) screening; physician consultation; and a hard-copy report. Blockages or bulges in blood vessels can be deadly, but vascular conditions don’t always have symptoms. These painless, non-invasive tests can check for abdominal aortic aneurysms and peripheral vascular and carotid artery diseases. A vascular physician specialist, nurse and technician will conduct tests and discuss results with each screening participant.
To schedule a screening, call the Vascular Center, (860) 224-5193, Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m.
