Carotid Ultrasound

This fast, easy, non-invasive and radiation-free test uses ultrasound to look at blood vessels within the neck. If detected, the presence of atherosclerotic plaque within these vessels could lead to stroke and may indicate the presence of other cardiovascular disease.

NOTE: The carotid ultrasound can be performed without a physician referral.
