New Year Screenings are Opportunities for a Healthier You
During January, people often refresh their focus on physical health. Most efforts are geared toward exercise and nutrition; however, health screenings can also add to a healthier lifestyle.
With U.S. cancer diagnoses on the rise, screening is essential to finding the disease early—even before symptoms appear—so that treatment options are better.
Fairfax Radiology Centers encourage all who meet appropriate guidelines to consider two basic screenings that can help maintain your health.
- Screening Mammography (generally women aged 40 and older)
- Lung Screening LDCT (generally smokers or former smokers and/or others with specific risk factors.)
Discuss these screenings with your doctor to see if you should consider one or both.
