One of the most important types of screenings we offer here at Los Angeles Mobile Imaging is the cardiovascular (echo) ultrasound. We offer this along with our other services to our patients in order to provide them with the preventative medicine they need to live a happy and healthy life.
Just like our other services, we offer this screening in the comfort of your home so that you don’t have to worry about a doctor or hospital visit. All you have to do is schedule an appointment, and we’ll come to you, sometimes on the same day.
We have the kind, courteous, and professional staff you’ve come to expect. These screenings aren’t just recommended. They could be a lifesaver, particularly the cardiovascular screening, which deals with the heart.
What is a cardiovascular ultrasound?
Cardiovascular ultrasounds are screening exams of the heart and blood vessels. These screenings are important because they can detect signs of heart disease in people who don’t have any symptoms. Why is it important to get these screenings done? The answer is simple: “prevention.” By looking at the heart and blood vessels, we can determine if there are any conditions you may have that could lead to heart attack or stroke.
What All Does a Cardiovascular Ultrasound Check?
When done with an echo exam, our team of experts can use sound waves and pictures of the cardiovascular system on a computer screen to check for blockages in the arteries (atherosclerosis) as well as other problems such as narrowing valves (stenosis), fluid around the heart muscle (pericardial effusion) or thickening of artery walls.
We check for heart valve function, blood flow irregularities, and several other different heart-related issues that are detectable via ultrasound. A thorough check of the heart is the best way to prevent major heart-related issues.
Why is a cardiovascular ultrasound important?
It’s vitally important to get these screenings done because they can catch any potential heart problems before becoming a serious health risk. Cardiovascular ultrasounds are the best way to screen for blockages in the arteries (atherosclerosis) and other issues that may not be detectable at first glance. It also provides an excellent opportunity for our staff of experts to identify if there is anything wrong with your lungs, heart valves, or general chest area.
This exam is important to your overall heart health, and you shouldn’t neglect an annual screening. Even if not ordered by a doctor, getting a routine screening every so often can help you prevent life-threatening problems or at least catch them before they become severe!
Overall, getting screened by our team will give you peace of mind about your heart health, and you can do it all without ever leaving your home.
Who Can Get an Echo Screening?
Echo screenings are recommended for people who: -Are over 40 years old -Have diabetes – Have high cholesterol levels – Have had chest pain during exercise – Have a family history of heart disease or any existing heart conditions.
Even if you don’t have any underlying issues, it’s a good idea to get a screening anyway to make sure everything is in order and running smoothly.
If you’re not quite 40 but have a family history of heart disease or any existing health conditions, it’s wise to talk with us and see whether this screening is right for you!
Many people don’t realize that simply by having an echo screening, they can help prevent life-threatening problems or at least catch them before they become severe. You may have no symptoms or health issues and can still encounter a heart problem if you don’t get a screening. Don’t wait for a doctor to suggest one.
