Body Scans Increase Your Awareness
There are over 100 different types of cancer that can occur throughout your body. Taking a proactive approach is your best defense against this deadly disease as many are preventable, treatable, and even curable when detected early.
Computed Tomography (CT) of the body uses sophisticated x-ray technology to help detect a variety of diseases and conditions. CT scanning is fast, painless, non-invasive, and accurate. CT imaging is one of the fastest and most accurate tools for examining the chest, abdomen, and pelvis because it provides detailed, cross-sectional views of all types of tissue.
Using a technology that “takes a look” at people’s insides which can detect early warnings of cancer, cardiac disease, and other abnormalities, a CT scan uses X-rays to produce images representing “slices” of the body – like the slices of a loaf of bread. Each image slice corresponds to a wafer-thin section which can be viewed to reveal body structures in great detail. Using a CT scanner and expertise to create and interpret CT scans of the body, radiologists can more easily diagnose problems such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, and musculoskeletal disorders.
