Vascular disease is an umbrella term used to classify a number of specific diseases and disorders that affect arteries and veins outside the heart. Vascular disease can restrict blood flow and typically develops in the abdomen, neck or legs. Left untreated, vascular disease can have devastating consequences.
A number of screenings to diagnose vascular system blockages are available through the noninvasive vascular labs at Norton Audubon Hospital, Norton Suburban Hospital and Norton Medical Plaza - Brownsboro. The screenings, performed on an outpatient basis, are painless and do not require a physician referral. The cost is $30 for each screening or $75 for all three. To schedule a vascular disease screening at a Norton Vascular Center, call (502) 629-1234.
