Cardiovascular diseases are detected by VASCASSIST at such an early stage that they are still largely asymptomatic and reversible. Early certainty about a possible risk of myocardial infarction or stroke gives patients room for maneuvering to favorably influence abnormalities of their respective vascular systems purely through their initiative.
If treatment is necessary, timely diagnosis has a tangible impact on future quality of life and the further course of the disease. For example, suppose constrictions in the arm and leg arteries are detected during screening for peripheral arterial occlusive disease (PAVD). Patients can achieve a great deal through their initiative (primarily targeted cardiovascular training). On the other hand, suppose there are already symptoms in the affected extremities (occurring mainly in the legs). In that case, the worst can be prevented by immediate interventions — the same applies to the chance of averting the danger of impending (cardio)vascular occlusion or, at the worst, amputation.
