Call (877) 732-8258 to make an appointment.
Cost for all four Life Saving Screenings: $100 for ISB Community Bank Premier Club members, $110 for ISB Community Bank customers, and $135 for community residents.
Strokes are the third-leading cause of death in the United States and up to 80 percent of strokes are preventable.
Stroke Detection Plus screens the carotid arteries looking for plaque buildup or blockage. The vast majority of strokes occur because of a lack of blood flow to the brain. This first test can determine the percentage of blockage restricting that flow. The second test looks for aortic aneurysm, which is an enlargement of the vessel that feeds the lower extremities with blood. The third test is for peripheral vascular disease, which is blockage in the arms and legs. An abnormal result here puts people at a 4-6 times greater risk of coronary artery disease. The final screening is for Osteoporosis, which looks for low or abnormal bone mass. All screenings are quick, accurate, and painless. Plus, you get results immediately.
