Are the screenings given by Life Line Screening 100% accurate?
Life Line Screening is aware of the concerns surrounding the quality of preventive public health screenings, and has taken every measure to ensure our screenings are of the highest quality. No test is 100% accurate, but our results are comparable to those you would receive in an accredited hospital vascular lab. Life Line Screening uses state-of-the-art ultrasound technology and highly skilled sonographers to perform our screenings. As part of our strict quality control, most screening results are then reviewed by board-certified physicians to ensure accuracy. Written reports are mailed to participants within 14 days, and we encourage all participants to share the reports with their physicians. We are also engaged in ongoing research with first-tier medical institutions to help advance the understanding of the causes of vascular disease and to further our public health initiatives.
