Available ultrasound exams include carotid artery (participants must be 50 or older); veins of the legs (participants must be 18 or older); and liver (this requires a 4-hour food and drink fast; participants must be 18 or older).

Limited appointments will begin in October between 3 and 7 p.m. select weekdays and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays.

The free exams last about an hour and are non-diagnostic. Volunteers will not receive a medical report but may be instructed to follow up with a physician. All exams will be performed by students on state-of-the-art equipment, under the supervision of a registered diagnostic medical sonographer. Harper’s program conforms to all patient safety regulations.

Please call the Harper College Diagnostics Imaging Lab at 847.925.6104 beginning September 18 to make an appointment.
