Houston Methodist Wellness Services offers screenings services to help you establish a baseline as part of your personal wellness program, including:

  • Biometric screening – a clinical professional evaluates blood pressure, height, weight and waist girth, tests glucose and performs a full lipid profile. A tobacco usage test also is available
  • Vascular age screening – our heart and vascular screening programs help you understand your disease risks. The carotid intima-media thickness test (CIMT) uses ultrasound to measure artery thickness and produces a risk assessment to estimate vascular age. Cardiologists check for blood vessel blockages, review your report and provide risk reduction recommendations
