Having screened more than 8 million people worldwide, Austin, Texas based Life Line Screening makes it easier to identify health conditions that often have no symptoms.
Dr. Andrew Manganaro, Chief Medical Officer and National Medical Director at Life Line Screening recently discussed how the company works to provide preventive health screening services that improve the quality of life in an interview with CEOCFO Magazine.
According to Dr. Manganaro, the large numbers of people who have made use of their services validates that both patients and doctors are accepting the precautionary screenings.
He pointed out Life Line Screening makes available testing that includes ultrasound, finger-stick blood screening and limited electrocardiograph. The outcome is meant to be revealed to the patient’s physician.
In addition, Dr. Manganaro emphasized the company continues to look at new testing for respiratory issues and adult onset diabetes.
He also highlighted how the company makes use of technology in all its screenings. He explained how through partnering with universities, such as New York University School of Medicine and Oxford University, they are capable of communicating awareness to the medical community.
In relating to his role at the company, Dr. Manganaro said throughout his career in clinical medicine and surgery he observed tragic endings that were brought about from diseases which could have been simply treated if the patient was previously aware of the disease.
Screenings are available in areas that include strokes, heart disease, cholesterol
and other life threatening conditions that can be remedied if detected.
In addition to the screenings, Life Line Screening’s preventative approach imparts information on present and potential health risks while there is time to avoid the advancement of the disease.
The company also offers a health e-newsletter that focuses on making healthier choices which better manage ill health.
