Men's Health Month: Protecting Our Men with Early Detection

Men's Health Month: Protecting Our Men with Early Detection

June is Men's Health Month, a time to focus on the health and wellness of men, particularly the importance of early detection and treatment of a variety of health conditions. At Atlantic Medical Imaging, we are committed to providing cutting-edge radiological services to help detect and manage health. We want to keep the men in our lives—our fathers, brothers, husbands, and sons—healthy and thriving. Here are some critical health concerns and how our imaging services can play a crucial role in addressing them.

Heart Disease: A Leading Cause of Death

Heart disease is the leading cause of death for men in the United States, accounting for 1 in 4 deaths. This staggering statistic underscores the importance of early detection and prevention. One of the advanced imaging techniques we offer is the coronary CTA scan. This non-invasive procedure can determine if there is any blockage in your coronary arteries, helping to identify potential heart issues before they become life-threatening. For more information about coronary CTA or to book an appointment, call 609-677-XRAY (9729).

Lung Cancer: Early Detection Saves Lives

Lung cancer is responsible for 1 out of every 5 cancer deaths and is the second most frequently diagnosed cancer in men. Early detection is crucial for improving survival rates. A low-dose CT lung screening is a powerful tool that can help diagnose lung cancer in its earliest stages when treatment is most effective. Men who are at high risk for lung cancer, such as those with a history of smoking, should discuss screening options with their healthcare provider.

Prostate Cancer: The Importance of Screening

Prostate cancer affects 1 in 7 men, making it a significant health concern. Early detection through screening can make a substantial difference in outcomes. Screening recommendations are as follows:

· Age 50: For men at average risk of prostate cancer.

· Age 45: For men at high risk of developing prostate cancer.

· Age 40: For men at even higher risk (e.g., family history of prostate cancer at an early age).

Discuss prostate cancer screening with your healthcare provider to determine the best approach for you. Prostate MRI imaging is an advanced technique that utilizes high-field MRI technology

to analyze blood flow through the prostate and detect abnormal areas that may indicate cancer. It can be performed to diagnose, rule out, or monitor the treatment of prostate cancer.
