Cardiovision is a non-invasive test that uses state of the art technology to measure blood vessel elasticity or flexibility. Since normal arteries are supple, flexible, elastic and stretch with each heartbeat, they have a low arterial elasticity index (AEI).
Diseased arteries, as in arteriosclerosis or “hardening of the arteries”, do not flex or expand as they should and thus have a higher AEI. The effectiveness of cholesterol drug treatment, diet and lifestyle changes, supplementation and chelation therapy can be monitored by this evaluation. Subsequently, this tool is useful not only for patients at risk for stroke, heart attack and hypertension, but, also as a diagnostic screen for athletes and the general population.
