In the current landscape of uncertainty and stress, it’s more important than ever to understand the value of your health and the health of your loved ones. While we all face uncertainties, there are still steps you can take to feel more in control: you have the power to take control of your health. Being an advocate for one’s health is a decisive step in ensuring a better tomorrow. And while there is much to occupy our minds these days, it’s important to remember that good health takes planning and prevention.
We know that weakened immune systems or underlying conditions make us more vulnerable. Knowing and understanding one’s physical vulnerabilities better enables us to fight back when life throws things our way—whether it’s a global pandemic, allergies, stress, or illnesses.
Preventive care is one of the most important steps you can take to control and manage your health. With preventive screenings, you have the power to take charge of your health and tackle issues before they become bigger problems. Earlier diagnoses can mean better outcomes, and that helps create a strong foundation for you and your loved ones to focus on the things that matter most.
We offer preventive services focused on delivering better outcomes through early diagnosis of diseases like breast cancer, lung cancer and osteoporosis. These services can also help identify if you may be at greater risk for a heart attack or detect underlying issues like the presence of an aneurysm. These non-invasive, simple scans include:
- Mammography: the best tool for early detection of breast cancer
- CT Cardiac Scoring: a non-invasive screening to determine risk of heart attack
- CT Lung Screening: exam with the ability to detect lung cancer in its earliest stages
- Bone Density: identifies early stages of bone loss and risk of osteoporosis
- AAA Ultrasound: painless screening used to detect aneurysm
Being proactive and working with one’s trusted medical provider to get health screenings is an essential part of advocating for your health. Since most scans require a doctor’s order, an important first step is to speak with your physician, share your wellness goals and determine together which preventive health scans are the most beneficial to your well-being.
Partnering with state of the art, patient-focused partners like Raleigh Radiology can help you stay on your path to wellness and ensure well-being for yourself and your family.
While you can’t choose your genetic makeup and the things to which you may be predisposed, there’s one thing you can control—becoming your own advocate. Schedule a preventive care appointment today.
