Health Screening

ALL IN ONE VASCULAR HEALTH SCREENING

Vascular screening uses duplex Doppler ultrasound to detect blood vessels blockages or plaque buildup that put a person at risks for stroke, blood clotting, heart disease, and blood circulation disorder.

Stroke scan:

Ultrasound is used to image the carotid arteries in the neck to detect blockages that may lead to a stroke.
Carotid Intima-Media Thickness test (CIMT): measures the thickness of artery wall layers and plaque buildup that may increase risks of heart & blood vessel diseases.

Who need this:
* Over 40 years of age
* High cholesterol, blood pressure & blood sugar
* Smoking (past or current)
* Had mild stroke before
* Diabetes
* Overweight/obesity
* Heart Disease
* Irregular Heart Beat
* Inactive Lifestyle
* Family History

Blood Clot Scan 

Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) occurs when a thrombus (blood clot) forms in the deep veins of our body typically at the legs which may block blood flow through our veins. These blood clots may potentially break free and travel to our lungs causing pulmonary embolism which can be life-threatening.

Who need this:
* Leg swelling or pain
* Not moving for long period of time (eg. travelling on a plane)
* Pregnant or recently delivered a baby
* Have varicose veins
* Taking birth control pills or hormone therapy
* Have/Had COVID-19
* Over 40 years of age
* Smoking (past or current)
* Overweight/obesity
* Family History

PAD scan:

Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is the narrowing or blockage of blood vessels that carry blood from our heart to our legs. This scan looks for plaque or blockage in these arteries that reduces blood flow to our feet and legs, causing leg pain and even tissue death (gangrene) that could lead to amputation of our legs.

Who need this:
* Leg pain (resting or walking)
* Leg numbness
* Coldness in feet
* Wound in the leg that doesn’t heal or heal very slowly
* Diabetes
* Smoking (past or current)
* Over 40 years of age
* High cholesterol, blood pressure & blood sugar
* Heart Disease
* Family History

Aorta or AAA scan:

This screening looks for abnormal bulging of the main blood vessel that runs from your heart down through your tummy. This condition is known as abdominal aorta aneurysm (AAA), which may get bigger and eventually burst (rupture) if not detected early.About 8 in every 10 people who have a burst AAA die before they get to hospital or do not survive emergency surgery to repair it.

BMI Calculator

The BMI Calculator is a convenient tool that gauges a person's weight in relation to their height, determining if it falls within a healthy range. By inputting height and weight, the calculator applies a formula (BMI = weight in kg / height in meters²) to yield a numerical value, indicating underweight, normal, overweight, or obese categories. This quick assessment aids in understanding overall health and potential risks.

 

Frequently Asked Question about Vascular Ultrasound Scan ?

Vascular ultrasound screening is a non-invasive medical imaging technique that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce images of blood vessels in the body. It is used to diagnose and monitor conditions related to the circulatory system, such as deep vein thrombosis, varicose veins, and peripheral arterial disease.

Vascular ultrasound screening is performed using a handheld device called a transducer, which is placed on the skin over the area being examined. The transducer emits sound waves that bounce off the blood vessels and produce images that are displayed on a monitor. The procedure is painless and usually takes between 30 minutes to an hour to complete.

Vascular ultrasound screening is a safe and non-invasive procedure that does not expose patients to radiation or require the use of contrast agents. It is a cost-effective and reliable method for diagnosing and monitoring vascular conditions. The procedure is also convenient, as it does not require any special preparation or recovery time.

Vascular ultrasound scan can detect a wide range of vascular conditions, including deep vein thrombosis, peripheral arterial disease, carotid artery disease, and aneurysms. It can also detect conditions related to varicose veins, such as venous insufficiency.

Vascular ultrasound scan is a safe and non-invasive procedure that does not have any significant risks or side effects. There may be some discomfort or pressure during the procedure, but this is usually mild and temporary.

The frequency of vascular ultrasound screening depends on the individual’s risk factors and medical history. For individuals with a family history of vascular disease or other risk factors, annual screening may be recommended. However, for individuals without any significant risk factors, screening may be performed every 1-2 years.

Vascular ultrasound screening is a highly accurate diagnostic tool, with a sensitivity and specificity of over 90% for most vascular conditions. However, the accuracy of the procedure depends on the skill and experience of the sonographer performing the exam and the quality of the imaging equipment used.

In most cases, no special preparation is required for vascular ultrasound screening. Patients may be asked to wear loose-fitting clothing and avoid wearing jewelry or other accessories that may interfere with the procedure.

This is the second time that I”ve visited Blessono Medical Clinic. Facilities are well equipped and staff (Helen, Amira, Nurul Aisah) are responsive and efficient to answer multiple queries via WhatsApp and f2f especially which tests to do or which tests suit you best or what is equipment testing for patient. You also can find really good professional doctors here. Waiting time isnt as long as other private hospitals. Highly recommend you to visit Blessono for your Health screening. After finished the blood test and while waiting for stress test, they served the light breakfast for you to relieve hunger. If you have finished all the test at 11am or 12 noon, you can walk to Pavilion Bukit Jalil (just 5 mins walking distance) for lunch. Overall, I will continue to perform my annual health screening at Blessono Medical Clinic (Bukit Jalil).
