A stroke occurs when blood flow to the brain is stopped, causing brain cells to die. There are two kinds of stroke: ischemic and hemorrhagic. Ischemic strokes happen when a blood clot or plaque buildup blocks a blood vessel in the brain. Hemorrhagic strokes result from blood vessels breaking and leaking into or around the brain.
Before having a stroke, some people experience Transient Ischemic Attacks (TIAs), also known as “mini-strokes". These are mild strokes that result from a brief interruption of blood flow to the brain.
We offer preventive screening for the blood clots and plaque buildup that cause ischemic stroke.
We offer five screenings to help you understand your stroke risk.
