There are three types of health screenings that are performed. There is the ultrasound that uses sound waves to see the structures inside of the body. It is most notably used during pregnancy to see the fetus and assess that it is healthy and growing accurately. Another type of screening they do is the finger-stick blood screening. They prick the soft pad of your finger and take a few drops of blood to test for heart disease and diabetes. The final screening they do is the limited electrocardiograph. This is the EKG and is used to detect atrial fibrillation, or more commonly known as an irregular heartbeat.
