Cardiovascular Institute


Physicians at the Cardiovascular Institute are skilled at detecting and treating carotid artery disease. They employ a host of sophisticated imaging modalities, such as carotid duplex imaging, CT scans, MRIs, and traditional angiography to identify blocked areas. Follow-up angiograms determine the extent of blockage and its exact location, in preparation for treatment.

For patients in which the carotid artery is more than 70 percent blocked, endarterectomy or stenting may prevent further symptoms, including a stroke.
