Preventative Screenings

ProScan Imaging offers preventative screening and wellness scans with a variety of testing modalities. Our comfortable outpatient medical imaging centers offer these services to help you identify health conditions before symptoms develop. This enables patients to receive treatment at an early stage when it is more efficacious and cost-effective. We offer the following tests; call us to schedule and find the testing location near you.


  • MRI Full Body

  • MRI Breast Screening

  • CT Lung Screen (LDCT)

  • Cardiac Score

  • Coronary CT Angiogram

  • Virtual Colonoscopy Screening

Preventative screening
MRI Full Body

A Full-Body MRI is used to evaluate the soft tissues of the body. Since tumors and inflammation produce an increased amount of water and swelling, MRI searches for areas of abnormal water accumulation and swelling throughout the body. It will evaluate the brain, soft tissues of the neck, blood vessels, and the blood supply to the head and neck. Specialized brain sequences can be used to detect early dementia, like Alzheimer’s disease. The MRI will also view the internal organs of the body through the pelvis. Special sequences can be added to evaluate high-risk areas, including the bile duct, liver, pancreas, uterus, ovaries, prostate gland, and testicles. This test involves no radiation and is particularly good for detecting soft tissue cancers at an early stage. This is a self-pay preventive test and requires a prescription from your physician.

What does this test entail?

This exam takes approximately 1 hour, depending on the required views. The patient must fast 6 hours before the MRI, including water.


Who should have this exam?

  • History of neurological problems, such as atypical headaches or family history of aneurysm
  • Family history of stroke
  • Any risk factor favoring early detection of cancer of the brain, bladder, liver, pancreas, prostate, gallbladder, bile ducts, liver, lymphoma,
  • Hodgkin’s disease
  • Joint or extremity problems or unexplained pain
  • Wellness evaluation, especially in patients under 50
  • Unexplained weight loss, malaise, fatigue
  • Previous history of cancer
MRI Breast Screening

Breast MRI is a highly sensitive tool for creating dynamic, three-dimensional images of breast tissue. It is a valuable tool in assessing dense breasts when used as an adjunct to traditional breast imaging modalities. A physician’s order is necessary for this test.


Who should have this exam?

  • Patients with an inconclusive mammogram
  • Breast or chest pain with an inconclusive mammogram or ultrasound
  • Evaluation of breast implants for possible rupture or to exclude cancer
  • High-risk breast patients under the age of 45
  • Any patient with small dense breasts
  • Insurance denial of diagnostic breast MRI study
  • Peace of mind for the higher-risk patient
CT Lung Screen

A CT Lung scan is a low-dose X-ray that takes multiple pictures of your lungs. A computer combines these images into a detailed picture of your lungs. This test can reduce mortality for those at high risk of certain lung diseases.


Who should have this exam?

  • Patients with a history of smoking
  • Family history of stroke
  • Family history of lung cancer
  • Occupational exposure (shipyard, military, asbestos, coal miners)
  • Unexplained cough or fever
  • History of unexplained, recurrent pneumonia
  • History of multiple x-rays as a child, including multiple scoliosis surveys
  • Previous history of cancer
CT Cardiac Score

This exam is a CT scan of the chest that measures calcium in the coronary arteries. The generated score helps to determine cardiovascular risk when combined with the traditional cardiac risk factors. Coronary calcium scoring is highly predictive of obstructive coronary artery disease. This simple scan requires no prep, is non-invasive, and takes about 15 minutes.


Who should have this exam?

  • Those 40 years old or over with increased risk for heart disease from any of the following:
  • Family history of heart disease, particularly with family members with the onset of heart disease before the age of 50
  • Smoking
  • Elevated total or LDL cholesterol, decreased HDL cholesterol
  • Elevated C-reactive protein
  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • High-stress job
  • Unexplained chest discomfort
  • Previous history of heart disease
  • Premature menopause
  • Abnormal lipoprotein A
  • Sedentary lifestyle
Coronary CT Angiogram (CCTA)

Heart Wellness Scan

One of the most dramatic breakthroughs in coronary artery disease detection, CCTA, offers doctors a clear look at the walls of the coronary arteries, where disease starts.

A Coronary CT Angiogram uses a CT scanner to produce high-resolution, three-dimensional images of the coronary arteries and can rule out cardiovascular disease with 98% certainty. This scan requires no sedation and takes less than 15 minutes to perform. Patient MUST take a beta blocker as prescribed by their referring MD; NPO 3 hours prior to scheduled scan; No caffeine 12 hours prior to scan time; No erectile dysfunction medication 48 hours prior to the scan. This test requires IV contrast.

Who should have this exam?

Individuals over age 40 with:

  • Family history of heart disease
  • Current or past smoker
  • Risk for genetic abnormalities
  • Patients with positive Cardiac Calcium Score

The Silent Killer

More than 50% of people who will suffer a heart attack do so without experiencing any prior symptoms. That’s why we offer the Cleerly coronary analysis to accurately assess your present-day heart disease risk before a cardiac event becomes inevitable.

Virtual Colonoscopy Screening

Virtual colonoscopy is done with a CT scan and is non-invasive, quick, requires no sedation, allows patients to return to work, and is less expensive. In a large study published by the New England Journal of Medicine, this procedure was found to be at least as effective and potentially more effective than conventional colonoscopy.


Who should have this exam?

  • Patients with a family history of colon cancer
  • Family or patient history of polyps
  • Those who prefer not to have a regular colonoscopy
  • Men or women over age 45 with prior normal colonoscopy
  • Change in bowel habits
  • Blood in stool
  • Unexplained weight loss or change in appetite
  • Wellness screen every 5 years after age 40
  • Previous history of cancer
  • History of multiple x-rays as a child
  • Multiple sclerosis
