Lung Screening CT

For men between the ages of 55 and 80 who are current or former smokers and who have a smoking history of at least 30-pack years, and with no history of lung cancer. No contrast, noninvasive, low dose CT exam that is superior to traditional x-ray.

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 men who have or who are at risk for osteoporosis.
