A stroke happens either because of hemorrhaging in the brain or when blood supply to the brain is blocked due to a blood clot. Once it happens, the brain quickly loses its ability to function in the affected area. A stroke can cause permanent neurological damage or death.

From our customers:

In June your group came to do a screening day at my Church. My stroke/carotid test proved not to be so good. When I took it to my doctor, she had me do another ultrasound at the hospital and immediately scheduled my carotid artery stint. My thanks is extremely inadequate. I am most grateful to you for the screening as I have not planned to have it done. It saved me from a stroke or possibly, death.
