Carotid Artery Screening Package

Carotid Artery Disease/Stroke Screening

The carotid artery/stroke disease screening procedure is simple, painless and non-invasive. You will be asked to lie on your back on an exam table. After applying gel to your neck, the technologist will move an ultrasound instrument called a transducer on your neck to create images of the carotid arteries and assess the rate of blood flow within them.

For more information, call (813) 443-3058, Mon-Fri 8am-5pm.
