occur anywhere along the aorta, but a large majority of these types of aneurysms occur in the belly area. An undetected and untreated AAA can have lethal consequences. Three out of four aneurysms are found by chance when a diagnostic test, such as an X-ray or ultrasound, is performed for a different reason. About 15,000 Americans die each year from ruptured aortic aneurysms -- the 10th leading cause of death in men over age 50 in the United States.

-- Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) Screening -- An oscillometry machine detects plaque build-up which occurs as the arteries in the legs narrow and harden (atherosclerosis). This serious disease can restrict blood flow and cause pain when walking. PAD is considered a leading indicator for those at risk of stroke and heart disease. One in every 20 Americans over the age of 50 has PAD. The two leading causes of death in the developed world are heart disease and stroke -- both of which are direct consequences of atherosclerosis. PAD is a major public health threat, affecting 10-12 million Americans, and requires greater screening through the use of the Ankle- Brachial Index.

-- Arterial Stiffness Index (ASI) Screening -- Also measured through automated oscillometry, ASI screening results provide specific data regarding arterial hardening, missed heartbeats, arrhythmias, blood pressure, and pulse patterns. ASI has been shown in studies to correlate with coronary artery disease. Currently, HealthYes! is the only local screening company offering the Arterial Stiffness Index.

-- Osteoporosis Screening -- A bone densitometer provides a Bone Mineral Density (BMD) measurement, expressed as a "T Score," as well as fracture risk and skeletal strength. Osteoporosis is a disease in which bones become fragile and more likely to break. If undetected and left untreated, osteoporosis will typically progress, painlessly, until a bone breaks -- often in the hip, spine, or wrist. Statistically, life-expectancy decreases d
