CoxHealth offers cardiovascular health screenings designed for the unique differences in risk factors of men and women.
For most of the screenings below, patients should be 55 or older and have at least one risk factor. Otherwise, we recommend that you talk to your doctor and let them know you're interested in the screening. No physician referral is required, but we may need a verbal approval from your physician.
Screenings are available by appointment. Call 417-269-9482 to book yours.
Types of Cardiovascular Screenings
Personalized Cardiovascular Risk Factor Assessment
This assessment evaluates your specific cardiovascular risk factors. The screening is tailored to the differences in cardiovascular disease for men and women, and provides information on your unique risk factors.
Carotid Quick Screen
This quick screening includes an ultrasound scan of the carotid arteries in your neck to detect plaque, the most common cause of stroke.
Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Screen
During this screening, we use ultrasound to scan your abdominal aorta to detect aneurysm.
Peripheral Artery Disease Screen
The PAD screening detects vascular disease in your extremities that may lead to quality of life issues, and identifies any increased risk for heart disease.
