What type of equipment is used?
We use the same state-of-the-art technologies that are standard in hospitals across the country for all our screenings. We are continually evaluating new equipment to ensure that our equipment is the most advanced.
How can you assure the consistency and reliability of your machines?
All machines perform a self-diagnostic check and continually re-calibrate throughout the day. They also undergo regular maintenance check-ups, as required by the manufacturer.
What kind of training have your ultrasound technologists received?
Our highly skilled, experienced sonographers and medical technologists have all completed formal medical and ultrasound programs, clinical rotations and specialized training. We employ over 700 highly trained healthcare professionals, more than any other screening company in the United States.
Why are your screenings shorter than those performed in hospitals?

We do this by offering simple, accurate, affordable screenings that detect whether or not the more costly comprehensive exam is necessary.
How long do the screenings take?
A typical screening appointment takes about 90 minutes, including several minutes of paperwork before the actual screening process. The exact time depends on the number of screenings scheduled during your appointment, the level of disease, your vascular anatomy and your body type. Accuracy and quality output are essential to us, so we make every effort […]
Can I eat or drink anything before these screenings?
It depends on which screenings you are having. Once you register for a screening, you will receive specific preparation instructions and the information will be included in your confirmation letter/email. It is important for you to follow those directions in order to get the most accurate results.

If intermittent Afib is suspected, the doctor may ask you to wear a Holter Monitor so the rhythm can be measured […]
