Screening exams are studies performed in order to detect disease before signs or symptoms develop. For many illnesses, early detection and treatment may slow disease progression, improve overall outcome, and increase the chance of a cure. When disease is detected at an early stage, treatment options may be less costly and less invasive. Most insurance companies, however, do not cover the cost of these beneficial screening procedures. Princeton Radiology presently offers a variety of screenings, available with a physician’s referral.

Who May Benefit?

Anyone 40 years of age or older who is considered at risk for heart disease or cancer based on family history or personal history may benefit by having a screening exam. This includes you if you have:

  • History of smoking
  • Family history of cancer
  • Family history of heart disease
  • High cholesterol
  • High blood pressure
  • Family history of aneurysm
  • Sedentary or stressful lifestyle
  • Women with a family history of ovarian cancer

Consideration of one of these potentially valuable examinations should be discussed with your physician.
