How We Screen
All of our ultrasound and ECG screenings are easy, painless, affordable, and convenient. Our highly trained staff use state-of-the-art ultrasound screening equipment for lab-accurate results. We do not use any equipment that exposes customers to a radiation risk (eg CT Scanning), but instead used harmless ultrasound imaging equipment, not dissimilar to that used to screen pregnant women and their babies.

Ultrasound (also called sonography) is a technique that uses sound waves to image structures in the body. During the ultrasound, high-frequency sound waves are transmitted to the area of interest in the body and the returning echoes are recorded.
First developed in World War II to locate submerged objects, ultrasound is now widely used to detect or monitor medical conditions in such areas as obstetrics, ophthalmology, and cardiology. Most people are familiar with it related to seeing the growing foetus during pregnancy. Ultrasound is harmless, painless and non-invasive.
Life Line Screening uses state-of-the-art Doppler colour flow ultrasound technology. You can count on this equipment for accurate, reliable images for:
In select locations, we offer simple finger-stick blood screenings that identify important risk factors for heart disease and diabetes.
These screenings are conducted by pricking the soft pad of the finger and taking a few drops of blood. The instruments we use to perform the blood screenings are lab-accurate and are used by major hospitals, insurance companies, pharmaceutical companies, and laboratories. Results are provided in less than 10 minutes.
Life Line Screening offers the following blood screenings:
To detect atrial fibrillation, also known as irregular heartbeat, a common heart condition that significantly increases the risk of stroke, we conduct an ECG. Our ECG electrode screening is quick, non-invasive and requires no preparation or removal of clothing.
