London Private Ultrasound: Carotid Artery Health Package

Welcome to London Private Ultrasound, your trusted provider for comprehensive carotid artery health assessments. Located in central London, our state-of-the-art clinic offers advanced diagnostic imaging to ensure early detection and accurate diagnosis of carotid artery conditions.


What is the Carotid Artery Health Package?

Our Carotid Artery Health Package involves a thorough examination of the carotid arteries, which supply blood to the brain. This assessment helps detect any narrowing or blockages that could lead to serious health issues such as stroke.

Package Includes:

  1. Carotid Artery Ultrasound: A specialized ultrasound examination of the carotid arteries will be performed to assess the presence of plaque buildup (atherosclerosis), narrowing (stenosis), or other abnormalities that may increase the risk of stroke or cardiovascular disease. This non-invasive imaging procedure provides detailed images of the carotid arteries, allowing for the early detection of potential issues.

  2. GP Consultation: You’ll have a dedicated consultation with our general practitioner to discuss your medical history, cardiovascular risk factors, and any symptoms you may be experiencing. Your GP will conduct a comprehensive assessment and review of your health profile to develop a personalized care plan tailored to your needs.

  3. Blood Test:

    • Haematology: Comprehensive blood tests, including a full blood count with a 5-part differential and erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), to evaluate the health of your blood cells and detect any abnormalities that may indicate underlying health conditions.
    • Biochemistry: A comprehensive panel of biochemical tests to assess kidney function (sodium, potassium, chloride, bicarbonate, urea, creatinine, estimated glomerular filtration rate), liver function (bilirubin, alkaline phosphatase, AST, ALT, gamma-glutamyl transferase, total protein, albumin, globulin), cardiac/muscle enzymes (LDH, CK), bone markers (calcium, phosphate, uric acid), glucose levels, lipid profile (total cholesterol, triglycerides, high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, non-HDL cholesterol), iron status (iron, total iron-binding capacity).

Common Carotid Artery Issues:

  • Carotid Artery Stenosis: Narrowing of the carotid arteries due to plaque buildup.
  • Atherosclerosis: Hardening and narrowing of the arteries from cholesterol deposits.
  • Carotid Artery Dissection: A tear in the artery wall that can lead to a stroke.
  • Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA): Often called a mini-stroke, caused by a temporary blockage.

Symptoms of Carotid Artery Problems:

  • Sudden Weakness: Particularly on one side of the body.
  • Numbness: Especially in the face, arm, or leg.
  • Difficulty Speaking: Slurred speech or inability to speak.
  • Vision Problems: Sudden loss of vision in one eye.
  • Dizziness: Loss of balance or coordination.

Benefits of the Carotid Artery Health Package:
