"This is something we're providing to the community," explained Dr. David Allie, Director of the Louisiana Cardiovascular & Limb Salvage Center. "We have several non-profit organizations who have raised funding for this, and we're offering for asymptomatic, meaning they don't have to have a symptom and no cost to the patients."
