Residents living in and around Brooklyn can be screened to reduce their risk of having a stroke when Life Line Screening Radiology hosts a program at the Best Western Gregory Hotel, 8315 Fourth Avenue in Bay Ridge, July 10; appointments begin at 9 a.m.

A stroke, also known as a “brain attack,” is ranked as the third leading killer in the world, and the second among women. Through preventive screenings, the risk of having a stroke can be greatly reduced.

Screenings are fast, painless and low cost. They involve the use of ultrasound technology, and scan for potential health problems related to: blocked arteries, which can lead to a stroke; aortic aneurysms, which can lead to a ruptured aorta; and hardening of the arteries in the legs, which are a strong predictor of heart disease.

Also offered, for men and women, is a bone density screening to assess their risk for osteoporosis.

All four screenings take less than an hour to complete and the cost for a wellness package of all four screenings, including the free osteoporosis screening, is only $159.

To schedule an appointment, call 1-877-237-1344. Pre-registration is required.
