- Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm: a screening to detect weakened areas of the vessel that serves as the main channel of the circulatory system.

The Maury Regional Women's Center, located in the Outpatient Pavilion, offers digital mammography - the most advanced breast imaging technology available for early detection of breast cancer. The Women's Center provides a convenient, private and pleasant environment for mammograms. Screening mammograms may be conducted on women 40 years of age or older without a physician's referral. Most insurances will cover the cost of this screening.
Heart screenings, also known as coronary artery calcium scoring, is used to detect calcified plaque in the vessels that supply oxygenated blood to the heart wall. If coronary artery disease is discovered in its early stages, treatment and monitoring of this disease can save your life. The cost for this screening is $100.
For a more thorough evaluation of the heart, a coronary CTA may be conducted. This is a non-invasive alternative to coronary angiography for some patients, but does require the injection of a contrast dye. The cost for this screening is $800.
Cancer, gall stone and kidney stone screening are offered for individuals 50 years of age and older. There are three scans available—the lungs, the abdominal area, and the pelvic area. Each procedure is $250.
