Early detection by the numbers
Find out about the six health screenings every woman over 40 should know about – and why early detection is the key to early intervention and better health.
1. 3D Screening Mammogram
Begin at age 40 and then annually every year after. We’ve integrated the accuracy of 3D with SmartCurve comfort technology for a better mammogram.
2. Bone Density Screening
Begin regular screenings at the age of 65, or younger upon the advice of your
physician. Bone densitometry, also known as DEXA, is the gold standard for diagnosing women who have or who are at risk for osteoporosis.
3. FAST Breast MRI
Supplemental screening test for women of average to intermediate risk for breast cancer. A 5-8 minute scan for additional peace of mind.
4. Cardiac Calcium Scoring CT
Work with your physician to determine if you are at moderate risk for heart disease and if this test is appropriate for you. Delivers a life-saving score based on the amount of calcium found in each artery.
5. Virtual Colonoscopy CT
Begin conventional colorectal screening at 45 and every 10 years following, with a virtual colonoscopy screening every 5 years. Safe, less invasive colon screening without the complications of conventional colonoscopy.
6. Lung Screening CT
For women between the ages of 50 and 80 who are current or former smokers and who have a smoking history of at least 20-pack years, and with no history of lung cancer. No contrast, noninvasive, low dose CT exam that is superior to traditional X-ray.
