Participating in preventative health screenings is the best way to catch health problems before they become serious issues. At Central Maine Healthcare, we offer the latest technology and methods for screening to ensure that you can live as healthy as is possible. We value your quality of life and want to help you take the steps to protect it!
Every year you should visit with your doctor for a well-woman exam. This check-up tests the tissues of a woman’s reproductive organs to ensure that they are healthy and disease-free. Our well-woman check-ups include pap smears, pelvic exams, breast exams, lab tests, birth control counseling, and menopause counseling. By attending your yearly exam, you’ll help to ensure that your body is healthy and disease-free.
Women need to begin visiting their doctors every year for a mammogram once they turn 40 years old. We offer the latest advances with an emphasis on comfort, while ensuring that we help you stay breast cancer-free. Our screening system is done with digital mammography, providing our patients with the highest quality of care in the prevention and early detection of breast cancer. Digital mammography allows the radiologist to view and manipulate the images on high-resolution computer monitors to enhance visualization of the breast tissue.
The number one cause of death for women in the US is heart disease, which places this screening at the top of your health priority list. We offer various non-invasive screening exams that allow us to see how your heart is doing. These include the cardiac stress test, echocardiogram, Holter monitor applications and interpretation, tilt table testing, and transesophageal echocardiogram. Together, you and your doctor will decide on the best screening tools for you to use to ensure that your heart stays healthy!
