Noninvasive Vascular Screening
Noninvasive vascular screening helps reveal blood flow problems in three areas: the carotid artery, abdominal aortic aneurysm and peripheral arterial disease. Each procedure is performed utilizing state-of-the-art ultrasound diagnostic equipment.
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is the fourth leading cause of death in the United States. However, many people do not realize they have the disease. It is a chronic lung illness that involves blockage of the airways. COPD develops over time, which means many people will not notice symptoms–such as shortness of breath–for years. Although there is no cure, there are things you can do to slow the damage and help you to feel better.
