Carotid Artery / Stroke Screening

Disruption of adequate blood flow to the brain can lead to a stroke. Carotid Artery plaque build up is responsible for up to 75% of all strokes. The Carotid Arteries travel up both sides of the neck and branch off into the Internal Carotid Artery, which takes blood to the brain and into the External Carotid Artery, which takes blood to the face and scalp.

The amount of plaque in the arteries will be reported as Normal to Critical (see below). The actual percentage of blockage is not calculated. If there are restrictions in your blood flow to the brain, the results will be marked Moderate, Significant, Severe or Critical. Please note that a mild amount of plaque is normal as adults reach the age of forty-five. If you have Moderate, Significant, Severe, or Critical findings you should consult your physician to determine if further evaluation is necessary.

The velocities of the blood flow in the Internal Carotid Arteries will be reported. The Velocity readings are important for doctors to determine if there are restrictions 
of the blood flow to the brain. Peak Velocity of 110cm/sec or less shows a normal amount of blood flow to the brain. Peak Velocity of 140cm/sec or higher shows significant blood flow restriction and requires follow-up with your physician.
