A stroke, also known as a “brain attack,” is ranked as the third leading killer in the world.
Screenings are fast, painless and affordable, according to Life Line Screening. They help identify potential health problems such as blocked arteries and irregular heart rhythm, abdominal aortic aneurysms, and hardening of the arteries in the legs, which is a strong predictor of heart disease.
A bone density screening to assess osteoporosis risk is also offered and is appropriate for both men and women.
A wellness package with heart rhythm screening is available for $159. All five screenings take 60 to 90 minutes to complete.
Life Line Screening was established in 1993, and has since become a leading provider of preventive screenings.
