Welcome Chicago FOP Members!

You are eligible for screenings for the following diseases:

 Carotid Artery Disease:

An ultrasound is performed to screen the carotid arteries (a pair of blood vessels in the neck that deliver blood to your brain) for buildup of fatty plaque. This buildup, called atherosclerosis, is one of the leading causes of stroke.

 Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD):

An Ankle-Brachial Index (ABI) test is performed using blood pressure cuffs on the arms and legs. It is important to screen for PAD because it increases the risk of coronary artery disease, heart attack, or stroke.2

 Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA):

An ultrasound is performed to screen the abdominal aorta for the presence of an enlargement or aneurysm. AAA can lead to a ruptured aortic artery, which is a serious medical emergency.

 Atrial Fibrillation (AFib):

An electrocardiogram (ECG) is performed by placing sensors on the arms and legs to screen for irregular heartbeat. AFib can lead to blood clots, stroke, and heart failure, and other heart-related complications.3

Disease Risk Assessment:

An assessment for 6 chronic conditions (coronary heart disease, congestive heart failure, stroke, diabetes, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and lung cancer) plus 10-year risk of first-time heart attack. Risk assessment is based on health questionnaire, blood pressure, waist size, body mass index and blood test for cholesterol and glucose. This information is run through a program to predict your potential risks and identify steps you can take to reduce your risks.

Please Note: This screening requires an 8 hour fast.
