Stroke Risk Screening

The Medical Center offers a non-invasive, painless screening for stroke risk as part of its Vascular Screenings. A Carotid Ultrasound scans the carotid arteries in the neck to detect plaque build-up, which causes 33 percent of strokes.

The screening is performed at The Medical Center Health & Wellness Center on the front of Greenwood Mall in Bowling Green. A vascular technician from The Heart Institute at The Medical Center performs the screening and reviews all results immediately on-site. The results are then sent to a board certified vascular surgeon at The Heart Institute for verification, and a report is sent to you and your physician.

For upcoming screening dates or for more information, call The Medical Center Health & Wellness Center at (270) 745-0942 or toll free at 1-877-800-3824 for appointment and further information. Appointments encouraged. Walk-ins are taken on a space available basis.
