LeConte Medical Center

Exciting new advances in the early detection of stroke are saving lives. You can reduce your risk of stroke by taking advantage of the special StrokeScore & More screening offered exclusively by Covenant Health. StrokeScore sessions are being scheduled for January 19 and January 26, 2011.

Your StrokeScore & More session will last approximately one hour and will include the following screenings:

  • Stroke Self-Assessment
  • Ankle Brachial Index (ABI) to screen for peripheral vascular disease
  • Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm ultrasound (AAA) to screen for weaknesses in the wall of the aorta
  • Carotid Artery Screening to detect plaque build-up in the carotid arteries of the neck
  • Lipid Profile to measure total cholesterol, the good (HDL) and bad cholesterol (LDL), triglycerides and glucose. A 12-hour fast is required. (Medications can be taken with water. If you have diabetes, check with your physician before fasting.)
  • Atrial fibrillation screening to detect heart arrhythmia
  • Blood Pressure to detect high blood pressure

LeConte Medical Center offers StrokeScore & More at select times throughout the year. The complete screening package is $100, a great value for this life-saving test.
