Event Description:
Aneurysms and strokes can strike suddenly and without warning. That’s why it’s best to identify and treat underlying causes before symptoms appear. Are you 60 or older? Do you have one or more of the following risk factors for an aneurysm, stroke or vascular disease?

• Current or past smoker
• High blood pressure
• High cholesterol
• Diabetes
• Heart disease
• Family history of aortic aneurysm

Stony Brook Medicine is offering free screening tests to identify the presence of vascular disease. Performed by a vascular technologist during a single visit, the tests include:

• Carotid ultrasound, to check for clogged carotid arteries in the neck, which can lead to stroke

• Abdominal aortic ultrasound, to test for aortic aneurysms, which can burst if reaching a large size  

•Ankle-brachial index, to check for PAD or peripheral arterial disease which may poses a threat to the health of your legs and is often a sign of heart disease.

The screening process for all three tests is quick—about 10 minutes for each test—and painless. Telephone pre-registration and a brief qualifying interview are required. No walk-ins accepted.

Your primary care physician will receive a copy of the report. Those with positive test results will be able to discuss the results immediately with our specialists, and follow-up appointments can be made on site.
