Wadley Scan Mobile Risk Assessments
The Wadley Scan will provide a simple, noninvasive vascular screening that provides information about circulation and risk of heart disease and stroke. After the scan, a color print out, of the results will be provided to the participant. The process takes less than 15 minutes.
Ten Thousand Scans in Review
2,916 participants with plaque in their arteries. An ultrasound scan shows the fow of blood in the neck arteries that go the front of the brain. Narrowing of these carotid arteries by the buildup of cholesterol called plaque within the walls of the blood vessels increases the risk of stroke. 15% of all strokes occur because of plaque in the carotid artery.
696 people were found to have abnormal heart rhythm. A normal heart rhythm is called sinus rhythm. One of the important cardiac rhythms to identify is Atrial Fibrillation (Afib). Individuals with Afib have an increase stroke risk of 4-5%. Medication can lower the stroke risk in persons with Afib by more than 75%.
354 people were found to have mild to severe blockage when tested for PAD. Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) is detected by testing for blockages in the arteries that go to the legs called an Ankle Brachial Index (ABI). A person with PAD is two to four times more likely to have a heart attack compared to the general population.
282 people had greater than 50% blockage when testing velocity. The Peak Systolic Velocity (PSV) of flowing blood can be measured in the arteries. If there is a narrowing in the artery, then the flowing blood can become turbulent.
43 participants with abnormal abdominal aortas detected. An abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is an expansion or ballooning of the abdominal aorta, that main blood vessel that carries blood from the heart to the rest of the body. The majority of people with AAA’s have no symptoms so early screening is often life-saving
“If you are in doubt about whether you should have a Wadley Scan Screening, take it from me… you most certainly should, because it could save your life… It did mine!”

Stroke Screening: Ultrasound of carotid arteries for blockage leading to stroke. The Peak Systolic Velocity (PSV) can determine the percentage of a carotid artery blockage.
Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm: Ultrasound of the abdomen since most aortic aneurysms have no symptoms until it is too late.
Peripheral Arterial Disease: Ankle Brachial Index study to detect blockage in the legs.
Atrial Fibrillation: A 5-lead EKG will be performed. Both AFib and carotid artery blockage are significant risk factors for stroke.

“I had to scan today — a good one! The ladies on the van were all very polite, helpful and thoroughly explained what was going on and, afterwords what the results meant. This is such a great thing for anyone to do ñ takes virtually no time (I was in and out in 15 minutes), and it is totally painless.”
