Remembering the Importance of Imaging Services for Men During Men’s Health Week

As Men’s Health Week, from June 10-16, approaches, it’s an excellent opportunity for men to prioritize their health and well-being. At ImageCare Radiology, we understand the importance of early detection and precise diagnosis in promoting men’s health. That’s why we offer a comprehensive suite of imaging services for men in New Jersey designed to address specific health concerns and conditions.Blue and White Graphic of a Tree with Blue Male-Centric Icons Around a Tree and the Text “June 01-16 Men’s Health Week”

Our facility is equipped with advanced imaging technology to offer a variety of diagnostic services tailored to men’s health needs. These services include:

Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Scans

An abdominal aortic aneurysm is a potentially life-threatening condition where the abdominal aorta becomes overly large or balloons outward. Early detection is vital for effective management, and our specialized scans can identify the presence of an aneurysm before it becomes a serious threat.

CT Cardiac Calcium Scoring

This non-invasive CT scan of the heart calculates the amount of calcified plaque in the coronary arteries. An increased calcium score might indicate a higher risk of coronary artery disease. By assessing this risk early, men can take proactive steps toward cardiovascular health.

DEXA Scans

Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) is primarily used to assess bone density and determine the risk of osteoporosis. While often associated with women’s health, osteoporosis can significantly affect men too, especially those over the age of 70 or those with risk factors such as low testosterone levels.

Low-Dose CT Lung Screening

Recommended for smokers and former smokers, this screening can detect lung cancer in its earliest and most treatable stages. Considering lung cancer’s impact on men’s health, particularly those with a history of heavy smoking, this screening can be a lifesaving tool.

Prostate MRI

An advanced imaging technique that provides detailed pictures of the prostate gland, helping to identify areas that may have cancer. Prostate MRI is increasingly used to help detect, evaluate, and treat prostate conditions, including cancer, which is among the most common cancers in men.

Scrotal Ultrasounds

This imaging test is used to evaluate disorders of the testicles and surrounding areas, which are common but not always discussed. It’s essential for diagnosing issues such as epididymitis, testicular torsion, and tumors.

Pluvicto Treatment

We are the only independent outpatient center providing this newer treatment option for men with prostate-specific membrane antigen-positive metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer. Pluvicto, a radioligand therapeutic drug, binds to PSMA, allowing radiation to be delivered directly to the prostate cancer cells.
