Traditional risk factors

Noninvasive ultrasound imaging
of carotid artery is recommended to improve risk assessment
particularly in those considered as borderline or
“Intermediate Risk”. However, reproducible measurement of
Carotid Intima Media Thickness (CIMT) is dependent on having
a skilled vascular sonographer therefore cannot be done
accurately in most physician offices.
Conventional CIMT measurement
is a multi-step process that takes significant time and
requires interpretation both of which increase cost.
CardioHealth® Station enables you to directly
visualize subclinical atherosclerosis (increased wall
thickness and hidden plaque in carotid arteries).
Carotid ultrasound studies that include CIMT measurement and
scanning for plaque have been shown in large, prospective
clinical studies to improve CV risk classification.
Station, with its simplified user interface, guided touch
screen controls, and automated ultrasound features, enables
virtually any medical professional to perform reproducible carotid scans in an
