ImageCare Centers provides the most advanced diagnostic imaging, giving patients access to potentially life-saving preventative services in New Jersey. We utilize the most state-of-the-art equipment, a team of skilled radiologists, and a caring and compassionate staff to provide our diagnostic screening services. Since most health plans must cover a set of preventive services at no cost to you (for in-network providers, check your individual plan for specifics,) it’s never too early or too late to talk with your doctor about your risk factors and decide if a preventative screening is right for you. Our preventative services include:
A non-invasive, pain-free test that uses CT technology to measure the amount of calcified plaque in the coronary arteries. A high calcium score indicates an increased chance of heart attack, and knowing this number helps the patient and their physician make a plan to better manage their cardiac health.
CT angiography is a non-invasive test that allows the visualization of overall vascular health. This imaging helps reduce the need for high-risk invasive testing for pulmonary embolism, coronary artery disease, aortic aneurysm, aortic dissection, and peripheral vascular disease.
A Mammogram – or x-ray of your breast tissue – is one of the most economic examinations available for detecting early stages of breast cancer. Innovations in 3D imaging means a greater chance of early detection of breast cancer compared to traditional 2D imaging.
A dual energy X-ray absorptiometry, or DEXA scan, is used to measure bone density for the diagnosis of osteoporosis or to determine the risk of bone fractures. Getting a DEXA scan done in a timely manner can help to slow, maintain, or even improve bone density loss, potentially preventing bone fractures from ever occurring.
This test uses low-dose X-rays to minimize damage to lung tissue while screening for lung cancer. This CT screening can locate chest tumors that may not be visible on conventional X-rays, identifying them at an earlier, more curable stage. Lung cancer kills more people than breast, colon, and prostate cancers combined, so early detection is critical and can improve survival rates by up to 80%.
Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is a largely preventable cause of death. This condition affects around 4% to 8% of men 60 and older, and ultrasound screening for it can reduce AAA-related mortality. The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force recommends a one-time screening for this condition for men aged 65 to 75 who have ever smoked.
A non-invasive peripheral arterial exam helps to diagnose and treat patients who have risk factors or symptoms of peripheral vascular disease. This screening helps physicians evaluate patients with a history of coronary artery disease, hypertension, diabetes, renal insufficiency, or a history of smoking accompanied by leg pain or non-healing ulcers.
