Strokecheck is not associated with or endorsed by the Stroke Foundation. It is a private organisation offering screening services for cardiovascular disease including stroke.

Carotid artery screening for stroke prevention is a highly controversial area and is not endorsed by national or international guidelines.

The Stroke Foundation does not support medical tests that may be unnecessary.

While Strokecheck is referring to one of our stroke statistics, this should not be seen as an endorsement of its services.

If you are worried about cardiovascular disease including stroke, the Stroke Foundation recommends you visit your doctor and ask for an assessment. Tests organised by your GP are often partially or totally covered by Medicare.

Further information can be obtained from StrokeLine on 1800 STROKE (787 653).
