NO DOCTOR’S ORDER IS REQUIRED FOR THESE SCREENINGS
Carotid Artery Disease (Stroke) Screening $49
The carotid artery/stroke screening is a painless and non-invasive procedure. When plaque (fatty cholesterol), builds up in your arteries, it can cause a stroke (CVA) or a transient ischemic attack (TIA). The first line of defense in diagnosing the potential for strokes caused by plaque is a carotid artery ultrasound screening.
Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA) Screening $49
The abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) screening is a painless and non-invasive procedure that assesses the largest artery in the body called the aorta. When the wall of the aorta becomes weakened, it can balloon outwards and rupture. If this happens, the body can go into shock due to significant blood loss and death can ensue. An ultrasound screening of the abdominal aorta is the primary defense against AAA rupture. CURE President, Karen Nussbaumer, has developed a unique method of determining not only the presence of an abdominal aortic aneurysm, but also the likelihood of rupture. If you are examined at CURE and you do have an aneurysm, CURE’s Nussbaumer Aneurysm Dilation Ration (NADR) can save your life when other conventional determinators of aneurysm prognosis fail.
Peripheral arterial disease is more commonly known as hardening of the arteries which occurs often in smokers and diabetics, but can occur in anyone. Unlike other screenings, CURE provides a detailed ultrasound duplex screening of the lower extremity (legs and feet) arteries with an ABI screening. The lower extremity duplex screening can assess for PAD as well as lower extremity aneurysms. In addition, the ABI screening is performed offering a complete examination of the lower extremities and the likelihood of PAD and, ultimately, heart disease. Patient with PAD have a much higher risk of heart disease than patients without it.
Heart Disease Screening $FREE with purchase of any other CURE screening or $99
Heart disease (cardiac disease) is the number one cause of death in our country and ultrasound is the number one tool used to diagnose heart disease. CURE cardiac ultrasound screenings will be able to assess for multiple heart conditions including heart attacks, heart valves, walls, tissue and surrounding structures. Considering that heart disease can affect anyone at any age, don’t delay your heart disease ultrasound screening. CURE believes that everyone should routinely be screened and, because of that, is offering free cardiac ultrasound screenings with purchase of any other CURE screening.
The thyroid regulates many body processes and over 70% of the population has some form of thyroid disease. Approximately 70% of those patients are not aware they even have it. With CURE thyroid screenings, patients are evaluated for many thyroid diseases including Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, Graves disease, hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, thyroid cysts and malignant and benign thyroid nodules. The CURE thyroid screening is quick, painless and non-invasive. With the rate of thyroid cancers increasing, it is vital to be screened even when your laboratory values are normal in order to catch thyroid cancers early.
Abdominal Disease Screening $99
The abdomen houses all of the internal organs including the liver, pancreas, kidneys, spleen and gallbladder. CURE abdominal disease screening will assess for the presence of absence of all abdominal pathology including benign and malignant processes from gallstones to liver cancer. With the rate of abdominal cancers increasing, it is vital to be screened even when your laboratory values are normal in order to catch abdominal cancers early.
Female Pelvic Disease Screening $99
The female pelvis screening includes the uterus, primarily looking for benign masses such as a fibroid, the ovaries, primarily investigating for cysts and masses as well as adjacent structures including the fallopian tubes, endometrium and cervix. The transabdominal pelvic procedure is safe, painless and non-invasive. At times, a transvaginal procedure is performed to further investigate the pelvic structures. This exam is also safe and painless. Female and male pelvic diseases often go overlooked because patients do not have symptoms. One of the female pelvic diseases is ovarian cancer, which typically does not develop symptoms until the cancer is at a late stage. With the rate of female pelvic cancers increasing, it is vital to be screened even when your laboratory values are normal in order to catch pelvic cancers early.
Male Pelvis Disease Screening $49
The male pelvis screening includes a transabdominal examination of the prostate. The transabdominal prostate procedure is safe, painless and non-invasive. This exam is primarily used to screen for prostate enlargement and other benign and malignant irregularities. One of the male pelvic diseases is prostate cancer. It has been said that as men age, they will eventually develop prostate cancer. It’s very important to catch prostate cancer early in order to treat and prevent the spread of cancer to other organs. With the rate of prostate cancers increasing, it is vital to be screened even when your laboratory values are normal in order to catch pelvic cancers early.
Obstetrics Complete Screening $99
CURE obstetric sonograms are among the best in the region with over 30 years of experience in Obstetrics and Gynecological sonography. A complete survey of the fetus is performed including:
- Date the pregnancy
- Fetal viability
- Fetal location
- Location of the placenta in relation to the cervix
- Number of fetuses
- Assess for major physical abnormalities
- Assess fetal growth
- Assess fetal movement and heartbeat
- Gender determination
Obstetrics Limited Screening $59
Note: Obstetrics Limited Screenings are only available to patients who have an official obstetric ultrasound report that verifies a normal pregnancy.
CURE understands that pregnancy can be a once in a lifetime miracle and many individuals choose to recognize this with a 3D/4D documentation of the baby. CURE will provide this for certain individuals including:
- CD of 3D/4D ultrasound images
- Gender Identification (when available)
