Since 1993 they have provided services to almost eight million patients and screen nearly one million a year in 16,000 locations nationwide. Life Line Screening is devoted to providing the highest quality service at an affordable rate.
Life Line Screening labs are CLA certified and adhere to the improvement amendments created by the United States. The ultrasound equipment and the technicians that operate them do so under strict standardized protocols. Life Line Screening technicians are either registered or eligible to be registered with the ARDMS or CC. Life Line Screening’s staff physicians, which include cardiologists, vascular surgeons, and radiologists bring their expertise to lifeline development.
All physicians that review the screenings are board certified. All screenings are painless, require no preparation and are performed with state of the art EKG and ultrasound equipment. There are several screenings that can be performed. An ultrasound or otherwise known as sonograph is a method that uses sound waves to image portions of the body. While an ultrasound is in progress sound waves transmit targeted areas of the body and the returning sound is recorded.
Life Line uses Doppler color flow ultrasound technology to detect problems such as abdominal aneurysms, carotid artery disease, ankle brachial (peripheral arterial disease) and bone mineral density. In some location’s Life Line also provides finger stick blood screenings which show possible risks of heart disease or diabetes.
Other Life Line blood screenings include lipid panel, glucose, high sensitivity protein and elevated liver enzymes. To detect irregular heartbeat lifeline makes use of an EKG, which requires no clothing removal or any other further preparation. Life Line has reached many milestones in its successful and progressive years, and have extended their reach globally.
