Life Line Screening is a company that offers various ultrasound, blood, and EKG screenings so that people who have indicators of diseases and health problems can be apprised of possible issues that can be shared with their doctor.
Ultrasound tests show images of various body organs and their physical condition. Much can be derived by viewing the organs and their positioning in the body, and these tests are non-invasive, yet show the organs clearly as they are functioning inside of the body.
Ultrasound screenings can detect carotid artery health, aortic aneurysm screening in the abdomen, bone density and screening for Osteoporosis risk, and ankle-brachial index screening which can be an indicator of peripheral arterial disease.
The blood test given by Life Line Screening is a small finger prick in the fatty part of the finger that is practically painless. From this test, an entire blood panel can be derived that can tell a lot about items such as cholesterol, both HDL and LDL and other items such as glucose levels, proteins that affect the heart and other organs, and liver enzymes.

A limited EKG can be administered which can detect an irregular heartbeat which can lead to a stroke and other heart issues. An EKG can also detect possible heart defects such as clogged arteries which might be preventing oxygenated blood from getting to the heart.
