Cullman, AL — Cullman Regional is offering free arterial disease screenings on Friday, June 19th at Cullman Regional Medical Group — Surgical Arts from 9am to 5pm.

Screenings include the following at no charge:

  1. Carotid Artery Disease screening — uses ultrasound to identify the presence of plaque in the carotid arteries. When a carotid artery becomes clogged with plaque, it affects blood flow and can potentially lead to a stroke.
  2. Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA) screening — uses ultrasound to check for abnormalities of the abdominal aorta (the largest artery in the body). Most AAAs are caused by plaque buildup but can also be caused by injury or infection.
  3. Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) test — PAD is a problem that causes poor blood flow to the arms, legs or feet. An ABI test is performed to check for overall circulation in the limbs and determine risk for PAD.

Cullman Regional Medical Group — Surgical Arts is located at 1930 Alabama Highway 157, Cullman, AL 35058.

An appointment is required for the screening. Call to schedule your appointment TODAY at (256) 734-7850. For more information about services provided at Cullman Regional, Visit their website!
