Vascular Screenings
get vascular screenings at UVA

You may not realize you have a life-threatening vascular disease because you lack symptoms. Vascular screenings are for patients without symptoms and are important to understand your risks for potential illness. 

Our comprehensive vascular screenings provide early detection of vascular disease and can significantly reduce your risk for serious, sometimes fatal conditions.

Metabolic Syndrome

Metabolic syndrome is a group of characteristics, such as obesity, high blood pressure and family history, that puts you at risk for heart and vascular disease.

We can help you identify these characteristics and create a treatment and lifestyle plan to lower your risk for developing heart and vascular disease.
