Healthy Resolution: Screening Studies in NYC

POSTED ON THURSDAY, JANUARY 15, 2015 AT 11:53 AM  by Dr. Marc Liebeskind

At the start of January many of us resolve to better our lives in the upcoming year. These resolutions often involve our health: lose weight, quit smoking, join the gym or take the stairs, for example. Healthy resolutions such as these can improve or protect our overall health. Protecting and maintaining your health in order to prevent disease is known as preventive health. Prevention and early detection give our body the best chance of fighting off destructive disease and can lead to living longer, healthier lives. In addition to resolutions of eating better, exercising, or giving up a harmful habit, this year we encourage you to maintain a good relationship with your healthcare provider.

Make 2015 the year you resolve to visit your doctor for regular check-ups, even if you feel healthy. At a well visit, your physician will screen you for disease, identify risk factors for disease, and discuss tips for a healthy and balanced lifestyle. Your doctor will also ensure that you stay up to date with immunizations and boosters. Why is prevention so important? According to the CDC: “Nationally, Americans use preventive services at about half the recommended rate. Chronic diseases, such as heart disease, cancer, and diabetes, are responsible for 7 of every 10 deaths among Americans each year and account for 75% of the nation’s health spending. These chronic diseases can be largely preventable through close partnership with your healthcare team, or can be detected through appropriate screenings, when treatment works best.”

At Park Avenue Radiologists, P.C., we understand the benefit of preventive health. Our team works diligently to ensure your radiologic examination is performed promptly and that the results of your study, which is vigilantly interpreted by our board-certified radiologists, are expedited to your ordering physician. We offer our patients an array of screening studies including:
