Their goal is to provide community-based, direct to the patient diagnostic wellness testing. The Life Line Screening service will identify your risk for serious health concerns, such as stroke, aneurysm and artery disease.

The health screenings Life Line performs are quick, painless and safe.

Life Line Screening provides three main types of preventive health screenings. Ultrasound screenings use sound waves to visualize structures throughout the body. The ultrasound imaging can successfully detect bone density loss, carotid artery diseases, peripheral arterial diseases and aortic aneurysms. Finger stick blood screenings provide an accurate reading of elevated liver enzymes, complete blood lipid profile, blood sugar levels and C-reactive protein levels. An electrocardiograph can detect irregularities in your heartbeat. An irregular heartbeat raises your risk of having a stroke.

After your Life Line Screenings, you will receive a personalized report called “6 for Life,” providing you with an easy to understand report card on six primary health risk factors. Risk factors including stroke, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, lung cancer, diabetes, heart disease and heart failure. You will also receive a heart attack risk score that gives your risk of having a heart attack or dying of a heart attack in the next 10 years.
