NGAT has partnered with Life Line Screening, the nation’s largest mobile vascular screening provider in the country.

Life Line Screening offers painless, noninvasive ultrasound screenings for stroke and vascular disease. These are tests that are often not part of routine physicals and can only be ordered by your doctor if symptoms are present, and by then, many times it can be too late. Prevention is key.

The 4-test package includes:
1.  Stroke Screening/Carotid Artery $60
Screens for buildup of fatty plaque in the carotid artery, the #1 cause of stroke.
2.  Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Screening $60
Screens for the existence of an aneurysm (enlargement) in the abdominal aorta that could lead to a ruptured aortic artery.
3.  Peripheral Arterial Disease Screening $60
Screens for peripheral arterial disease in the lower extremities, which is linked to coronary artery disease.
4.  Atrial Fibrillation Screening $60
Screens for the most common irregular heart beat, which increases the risk of stroke 5-fold.

NGAT members & family: sign up for all 4 tests and pay member price of only $135.

Additional tests include:

  • Heart disease risk
  • Osteoporosis risk
  • Elevated C-reactive protein
  • 6 for Life
  • High cholesterol
