Carotid Artery

Advanced Carotid Artery Health Package

Price: £580

Introducing our Advanced Carotid Artery Health Package, a comprehensive screening program designed to assess and monitor the health of your carotid arteries, crucial for preventing stroke and cardiovascular events. This package combines state-of-the-art carotid artery ultrasound imaging, consultations, and an extensive panel of blood tests to provide a thorough evaluation of your cardiovascular health.

Package Includes:

1. Carotid Artery Ultrasound: A specialized ultrasound examination of the carotid arteries will be performed to assess the presence of plaque buildup (atherosclerosis), narrowing (stenosis), or other abnormalities that may increase the risk of stroke or cardiovascular disease.

2. GP Consultation: You’ll have a dedicated consultation with our general practitioner to discuss your medical history, cardiovascular risk factors, and any symptoms you may be experiencing. Your GP will conduct a comprehensive assessment and review of your health profile to develop a personalized care plan tailored to your needs.

3. Blood Test:

  • HAEMATOLOGY: Comprehensive blood tests, including a full blood count with a 5-part differential and erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), to evaluate the health of your blood cells and detect any abnormalities that may indicate underlying health conditions.

  • BIOCHEMISTRY: A comprehensive panel of biochemical tests to assess kidney function (sodium, potassium, chloride, bicarbonate, urea, creatinine, estimated glomerular filtration rate), liver function (bilirubin, alkaline phosphatase, AST, ALT, gamma-glutamyl transferase, total protein, albumin, globulin), cardiac/muscle enzymes (LDH, CK), bone markers (calcium, phosphate, uric acid), glucose levels, iron status (iron, total iron-binding capacity), and lipid profile.

  • Lipid Profile: Assessment of lipid levels, including total cholesterol, triglycerides, high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, non-HDL cholesterol, apolipoprotein A, apolipoprotein B, and lipoprotein (a). Dyslipidemia is a major risk factor for atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease.

  • Inflammatory Markers: Measurement of inflammatory markers, including high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hsCRP) and lipoprotein-associated phospholipase A2 (Lp-PLA2 or PLAC) test, to assess the presence of inflammation and its role in cardiovascular risk.

Benefits of the Advanced Carotid Artery Health Package:

  1. Early Detection of Cardiovascular Risk: Our package provides a comprehensive evaluation of your cardiovascular health, allowing for the early detection of atherosclerosis, stenosis, and other risk factors for stroke and cardiovascular disease.

  2. Personalized Care and Risk Assessment: Based on the findings from the carotid artery ultrasound and blood tests, our healthcare professionals will provide personalized recommendations and interventions to mitigate cardiovascular risk factors and optimize your health.
