Ashland, Ky. – King’s Daughters Medical Center, in cooperation with the Kentucky Heart Foundation, is offering a free screening to detect carotid artery disease. The screening will begin at 1 p.m. Friday, June 1, at the King’s Daughters Medical Specialties office, 6276 State Route 107, Proctorville, Ohio.
Appointments are required and may be made by calling 1-888-377-KDMC (5362).
Vascular/endovascular surgeon Al Addasi, M.D., of Tri-State Vascular Specialists will review results immediately following the screening.
The screening consists of an ultrasound exam of the carotid arteries, which supply blood to the brain. Blockages in these arteries can lead to stroke.
Additional screening criteria may apply, which allow King’s Daughters to see those most at risk.
