Preventive and Wellness Screenings
Imaging for Early Disease Detection & Prevention
A variety of imaging tests are available for the asymptomatic patient at risk. However, these tests are not yet reimbursed by Medicare or many insurance companies. They require payment in full at the time of the procedure. Some of the tests can be requested directly by the patient, while others require a doctor's prescription.
Exams for Early Detection
Physician name and address required (results will be sent to this physician):
- CT Coronary Calcium Scan - Detects and measures coronary arterial calcium (atherosclerosis), an early indicator of disease in the coronary arteries
- Lung Screening (CT) - Can detect lung cancer and other abnormalities of the lungs, including emphysema before it can be detected by lung function tests.
Physician referrals needed:
- Screening Carotid Ultrasound - Identifies blood flow blockages to the brain (stroke risk).
- Screening Abdominal Aortic Ultrasound - For detection of aortic aneurysms.
- CT Coronary Angiogram - Earliest detection of plaque in coronary arteries.
- Mammography - For detection of breast cancer and other conditions of the breast.
- Coronary CT Angiography (CCTA) - Assess coronary stenosis as well as the extent of non-calcified ("soft") plaque and calcified plaque.
- CT Colonography - An alternative to colonoscopy for detection of colon cancer.
- Cerebral Aneurysm Screening (Brain MRI/MRA) - Early detection of brain abnormalities including tumors, aneurysms and possibly predicting stroke or dementia.
- MRI Abdominal/Pelvic - An exam of the abdominal and pelvic regions.
- Bone Density - Detects osteoporosis that can lead to fractures.
- Deluxe Screening Package- Includes the following exams: Coronary Calcium Scan, CT Lung screening, MRI Brain, MRI Abd/Pelvis, and Bone Density Scan.
