Comprehensive Stroke & Organ Screening Event

Comprehensive Stroke & Organ Screening Event

On May 18th, 2024, from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm, Urgent Scan Health & Wellness is bringing its mobile ultrasound stroke-prevention team to Calvary Baptist Church, located at 1600 Harvey S, McAllen. This vital initiative aims to detect and prevent strokes and other serious health conditions through early screening.

For a fee of $149, participants will receive a thorough examination focused on three critical areas:

  1. Stroke Prevention: Through a carotid artery scan, the team will assess for any blockages in the neck arteries, a significant risk factor for strokes.
  2. AAA Detection: Screening for Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA) is crucial, as ruptures can lead to sudden death. Early detection can be lifesaving.
  3. AFib Identification: Utilizing an EKG, the team will identify any signs of Atrial Fibrillation (AFib), an irregular heartbeat that increases the risk of stroke.

Additionally, the screening will include ultrasound scans of vital organs to detect abnormalities such as cysts, masses, and stones. The organs covered in the ultrasound examination include:

  • Thyroid: Screening for cysts or masses.
  • Gallbladder: Detection of gallstones or sludge.
  • Liver: Identification of cysts or masses.
  • Kidneys (2): Examination for cysts, masses, or stones.

It’s essential to note that these screenings go beyond routine physical examinations, offering a comprehensive assessment of crucial health indicators.

To secure your spot for this critical screening event, contact Urgent Scan Health & Wellness at (956) 515 7331 or email info@urgentscanusa.com. Don’t miss this opportunity to prioritize your health and well-being. Early detection could save lives.
