VASOGRAM TECHNOLOGY AT WORK FOR YOUR HEART

Vasogram Technology: InterCare Vascular Diagnostic Care

The Vasogram Module in the InterCare Vascular Diagnostic Center provides a comprehensive system for measuring Atherosclerotic Burden, early detection of Coronary Arterial Disease, the potential of Stroke, and overall arterial health.
Atherosclerosis is a common form of arteriosclerosis in which fatty substances form a deposit of plaque on the inner lining of arterial walls. Arteries are composed of collagen, elastin, and smooth muscle and are under tension/stress in the normal physiologic state.

Current cardiovascular research has confirmed that heart attack, stroke, and most forms of peripheral vascular disease are caused by abnormalities in the arterial wall.
Vasogram is a new technology that has been developed that allows physicians to assess the status of the arterial wall. The test is rapid and painless and can be performed with no risk to the patient in our office. Vasogram is 90% Sensitive and 90% Specific in determining your risk for having a heart attack or stroke within 10 Years.

"I love being a patient of Dr. Awosika he’s great always addresses concerns. I wouldn’t trade him for anything in the world. I would highly recommend him to anyone! Thanks, doc you are the best! !!! The staff is great I love you guys."


"Dr. Banji Awosika is such a great doctor. He has helped both of my parents reduce their medications by simply changing their diet. My dad has been able to eliminate nine meds in less than 2 years and almost double his kidney function in the same time frame, thus avoiding dialysis. My mom has been able to eliminate kidney stones just with her diet and without an operation. The team at West Orange Nephrology is such a pleasure to work with and has been such a great asset in changing my parent’s lives. Thank you!!"


"I just finished my 4th appointment with Dr. Awosika today and another prescription drug has been reduced to half the daily amount! Also, within 3 months of following his diet and exercise directions, my GFR went from 44 up to 60! I know of others who’ve had such success. He and his staff are very professional, friendly, and easy to talk to. I highly recommend Dr. Awosika."

Douglas P.

"My back story is that I had a non-functional kidney for many years, which symptoms has been misdiagnosed as GI problems until I ended up in the ER with severe pain, and required emergent removal of that kidney. My experience with my previous Nephrologist was not the greatest, mostly because any time I would discuss my concerns about my kidney health, he simply said that I’m young and have nothing to worry about. A friend referred me to Dr. Awosika, and I have never been happier about her suggestion to see him. He always listens to my concerns, sends me for testing related to those concerns, and looks at my test results before saying everything is ok. He considers lifestyle changes before suggesting medication, if appropriate. I truly appreciate his dedication to patient care and would recommend him to any of my friends and family."
