In an interview, Dr. Manganaro was asked how Life Line goes beyond annual checkups. The doctor answered by saying they use a risk algorithm that accounts for the patient’s suitability for screening. Then they are able to provide screenings for patients who are asymptomatic, but at risk for cardiovascular disease and more information click here.
The doctor said they offer non-invasive ultrasounds of the carotid arteries and abdominal aorta along with ankle brachial index, EKG screenings for the presence of aortal fibrillation and blood tests. He went on to say they attempt to offer patients new tests and new ways of prevention. Dr. Manganaro said what excites him is scientific awareness in the importance of identifying asymptomatic disease in the early stages. This can mean family doctors can prescribe medications and with lifestyle changes, it can be possible to avoid the progression of the disease.
