Vascular Screening

TriHealth offers convenient, low-cost screening for vascular disease at locations throughout Greater Cincinnati. No physician referral or prescription is required for these painless, non-invasive tests.

Please note that screenings:

  • Cost $99
  • Take about 30 minutes
  • Are scheduled between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday

Take the assessment below to determine if you would be a good candidate for a vascular screening. During each testing, we screen for three types of vascular disease:

  •  Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA) - Occurs when the large blood vessel (aorta) that supplies blood to the abdomen, pelvis, and legs becomes abnormally large or balloons outward. An abdominal aortic aneurysm can develop in anyone, but is most often seen in men over age 60 who have one or more risk factors. The larger the aneurysm, the more likely it is to rupture and break open.
  • Carotid Artery Disease - The carotid arteries in the neck become narrowed or blocked. When the arteries become narrowed with plaque, the condition is called carotid stenosis. The plaque may slowly block or narrow the carotid artery or cause a clot to form more suddenly. Clots can lead to stroke.
  • Peripheral Vascular Disease (PVD) - A condition of the blood vessels that leads to narrowing and hardening of the arteries that supply the legs and feet. The narrowing of the blood vessels leads to decreased blood flow, which can injure nerves and other tissues. 

Vascular Disease: Learn Your Risk
