For Health Professionals: Vascular Health Screening

UW Health Heart and Vascular Care's Vascular Health Screening Program helps physicians identify patients with atherosclerosis - hardening of the arteries that can lead to heart attacks, stroke and impaired blood flow to the legs - before it can be detected with blood or stress tests.
Vascular health screening involves a painless test that does not require undressing, exercising or drawing blood.
Approximately two weeks after patients complete the test, they will have a private session with a cardiovascular nurse specialist who is an expert on cardiovascular risk assessment and personalized counseling.
