Coronavirus infection also affects the inner surfaces of veins and arteries, which can cause blood vessel inflammation, damage to very small vessels and blood clots, all of which can compromise blood flow to the heart or other parts of the body. You may not even know it.
You may not be showing symptoms which means you won't qualify for a referral from your doctor; however, this is one of the unique screenings Cardioptics performs. We issue the reading as a "vascular age" number. For example, if you are a 30 year old person who is the picture of health, your arteries can still measure as a 55 year old person due to the havoc Covid has been proven to cause on the arteries, veins and organs.
How it works:
Ultrasound is one of the primary means of determining heart failure, kidney and liver problems. Heart damage due to Covid can be caused by the high levels of inflammation circulating in the body. As the body’s immune system fights off the virus, the inflammatory process can damage some healthy tissues, including the heart.
The scan can be performed in the privacy of our mobile unit or in the comfort of your own home. When we perform the scan, we use ultrasound to detect the level of inflammation of the sac surrounding the heart, inflammation and scarring of the heart muscle, and inflammation of the inner lining of the veins and arteries.
At Cardioptics we believe the first step to optimum health is prevention. Our screening services give you quick and easy access to any red flags that could potentially turn into major health issues. No one is more concerned with your health than you are, and that's why we are making this service quick and convenient. There's no need to qualify for the scan, jump through insurance hoops or even wait in a waiting room. We are eliminating the need to ask for permission to take your health into your own hands and we are here for you when you are ready to take that step.
This scan is used to detect abnormalities in the thyroid such as nodules, cysts, goiters, and tumors. This scan gives a lot of valuable information such as if a growth is fluid-filled or solid, the number of growths, where the growths are located, whether a growth has distinct boundaries, and if there is blood flow to the growth.
This procedure is used to assess for pancreatic malignancy, pancreatitis and its complications, as well as for other pancreatic panthology. This scan identifies conditions such as pancreatic necrosis, pancreatic abscess, pancreatic carcinoma, pancreatic endocrine tumors, and much more.
This scan assesses the gallbladder and bile ducts and detects any abnormalities. Among other things, the scan may show gallstones and also a blockage within the bile duct or gallbladder called cholecystitis.
Scanning of the kidneys will allow us to assess the size, shape, and location of the kidneys and related structures, such as the ureters and bladder. The scan can detect cysts, tumors, abscesses, obstructions, fluid collection, and infection within or around the kidneys.
AAA stands for abdominal aortic aneurysm. The largest blood vessel in the body. This test looks for weak spots in the artery called aneurysms. The first symptom of a abdominal aneurysm usually is sudden death.
Evaluation of the liver by ultrasound will reveal damage and fatty liver. These things are reversible if caught in time, but fatty liver disease is linked to heart attacks.
Evaluation of the size, shape, texture, and vascularity of the spleen. This scan will allow us to see trauma, disease, and malignancy.
