Preventative Screenings Q&A

Why are preventive screenings necessary?

Preventive screenings are necessary because they help prevent or delay chronic health problems that affect your quality of life.


UIMG Community Health Clinic is a diagnostic imaging practice that aims to make essential health services like preventive screenings accessible to all. They offer convenient, low-cost imaging tests for the communities they serve. Their preventive screenings are high-quality, noninvasive tests.

What are examples of preventive screenings?

UIMG Community Health Clinic offers state-of-the-art imaging tools to diagnose and treat many health issues. Some of the preventive screenings they offer include:

Carotid artery disease screenings

Carotid artery disease causes plaque buildup along the artery walls, limiting or blocking blood flow to the brain and putting you at risk of a stroke.


UIMG Community Health Clinic performs carotid artery ultrasound tests to evaluate the blood vessel, looking for areas of blockage that can increase your risk of severe health complications.

Peripheral vascular disease (PVD) screenings

PVD is narrowing or blockages in the peripheral arteries that supply oxygen-rich blood to your arms and legs. UIMG Community Health Clinic performs vascular ultrasounds to evaluate the blood vessels and screen for PVD.


They also do ankle-brachial index (ABI) testing, comparing blood pressure in the arms to blood pressure in the legs.

Duplex imaging

Duplex imaging is a special ultrasound test that measures the speed of the blood flowing through your blood vessels. This test screens for PVD, carotid artery disease, coronary artery disease (CAD), and chronic venous insufficiency (CVI).

Electrocardiogram (EKG)

An EKG is a quick, painless test that checks the electrical activity in your heart, which determines the rhythm of your heart. This test screens for heart problems like arrhythmias (abnormal heartbeats) and heart attack.


Echocardiography is an ultrasound test that looks for abnormalities in the structure and function of your heart.
