Sign Up for Ultrasound Screenings
Posted Date:
9/6/2012

The Town of Aberdeen will offer for the first time this year a new screening for all full-time employees. 

Ultrasound screenings will be offered free of charge for the following screenings:

· Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm enlargement in the lining of the artery that leads from the heart to the lower abdomen.  Rupture often leads to sudden death.

· Carotid Artery Disease occurs when there is a blockage in the arteries in the neck that supply blood to the head and neck.  It is the #1 cause of stroke, a leading cause of disability and death in the United States.

· Peripheral Vascular Disease sometimes known as hardening of the arteries, is a blockage of the arteries that supplies blood to the arms and legs.  Generally only 40% of PVD cases have symptoms and 75% of the cases with symptoms go undiagnosed. 

These screenings will allow for early intervention and prevention of these life-threatening issues. 

Screenings will take place on September 11 and 12, 2012 at the Public Works facility.  Please call Regina to schedule your appointment today for these free screenings.  Screenings will be scheduled on a first-come first-served basis.
