Life Line Screening is a medical facility dedicated to helping people become aware of potential health problems. This facility employs a comprehensive staff of registered technicians as well as board certified physicians, radiologists and cardiologists. All of the screenings provided through Life Line are conducted according to the latest protocols to ensure the results are accurate. Their labs are also certified according to the standards laid out in the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendment for the United States. Since Life Line Screening first opened its doors in 1993, it has helped millions of people become aware of potential health issues through its preventative screening services.
Life Line Screening offers their services through three basic methods. Ultrasound is used to view the internal systems of the body. This method is used to screen for aneurysms in the abdominal or aortic regions. It is also used to screen for disease in the carotid artery, disease in the peripheral arteries and bone density to determine the risk for osteoporosis. Life Line Screening also uses the traditional finger stick method for obtaining blood samples. A blood panel is run to detect the presence of certain elements, such as glucose. These samples could be used to screen for cholesterol, diabetes, liver damage and cardiovascular disease.
In addition to the two aforementioned methods of screening, Life Line also offers electrocardiograph screening under certain circumstances. This is used to detect an irregular heartbeat, which could be an indication of a more serious condition. Additional screening services offered through this facility include screening for thyroid disease, kidney disease, colorectal cancer and prostrate cancer. They also offer a health risk assessment screening that addresses the six major conditions that could be potentially severe. This assessment includes screening for diabetes, stroke, congestive heart failure, COPD, heart disease and lung cancer.
