Wake Radiology Screenings for Adults
As people get older, they are at greater risk for certain conditions or diseases. In addition to the aging process, heredity and lifestyle choices impact their risk for heart disease, cancer and other conditions. Screenings, especially those using imaging technology, can look inside the body and give physicians valuable information they can use to identify or control serious medical problems. Wake Radiology offers a full line of screening studies to referring physicians and their patients. These include conventional 2D and 3D breast cancer screening mammography, bone density studies (DXA), abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) ultrasound screenings, CT coronary calcium scoring, colon cancer screenings and CT lung cancer screenings as well as cutting edge Amyvid PET-CT studies that can help rule out Alzheimer’s disease. Screenings covered by Medicare and private insurance companies require that certain criteria be met. Wake Radiology recommends that patients check with their insurance carrier before scheduling their screenings to confirm coverage and payment. Exams that are not covered by payors are considered out-of-pocket procedures and are payable at the time of service. Learn more. With the exception of screening mammography, all screening studies performed at Wake Radiology require a signed physician referral—regardless of insurance coverage. For mammograms, Wake Radiology simply requires that eligible patients have visited their physician within the past 18 months.
