This type of health care screening, also known as sonography, utilizes high frequency sound waves, which are transmitted to areas of interest in the body, and the resulting echoes are recorded. It is commonly used to see a fetus during pregnancy. At Life Line screening, it is used to produce images for ankle-brachial index screening for peripheral arterial disease, carotid artery disease screening, bone mineral density screening for osteoporosis risk and abdominal aortic aneurysm screening.

Preventative Healthcare will Save You Money and Quite Possibly, Your Life

Dr. Andrew Manganaro, a successful entrepreneur and cardiac, vascular, and thoracic surgeon began managing Life Line upon his retirement from private practice after 35 years of caring for patients. Throughout his academics and career he remained at the top of his focus of study or specialty of practice and with experience found that preventative medicine was vital to the longevity in life for his patients. Managing Life Line Screening has allowed him the time to focus on ensuring important testing that can diagnose a non-symptomatic disease that can be both costly and deadly, is accessible to most people.

Lifeline offers three tests that are non-invasive and require little to no preparation on the patients part; ultrasound, finger sticks, and echo cardiogram. They are able to offer these tests at very reasonable rates by cutting out the middle man, insurance companies, and requiring payment for these tests directly from the patient. If an issue is found through the testing they will send records directly to your regular provider that explain their findings; this allows for your PCP to provide appropriate treatment to help prevent a catastrophic illness that would end up costing you greatly financially and possibly take your life. Being that the diseases mostly screened for do not present with symptoms until they are quite advanced, having this diagnosis from Life Line enables preemptive treatment on a disease that may never be diagnosed otherwise.
