Life Line Screening currently offers five additional non-invasive lifesaving health screens including: an Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm screen that detects the existence of an aneurysm or enlargement in the abdominal aorta through ultrasound visualization; an Ankle Brachial Index that screens for peripheral arterial disease in the lower extremities using ultrasound technology; an Osteoporosis screening that estimates the bone density of the heel to detect abnormal bone mass density, which may suggest a risk of osteoporosis; a Cholesterol and Glucose screening that provides a full profile cholesterol and glucose evaluation to identify increased blood cholesterol and glucose levels; and a PSA screen that detects risk of prostate cancer.
