Early Detection is Vital

Vascular screening tests can lead to early diagnosis of heart disease.  In most cases, with early detection, vascular disease can be treated effectively. Cardiovascular Services at Knox Community Hospital and Knox Diagnostic Imaging Center, LLC have teamed up to offer several simple, low cost blood flow screenings that detect potential risk factors associated with the onset of stroke, peripheral arterial disease and abdominal aortic aneurysm.

These screening tests can be performed without a physician referral.  However, in some cases, insurance companies may not cover the cost of the test without a physician referral.  Please check with your insurance provider.
