Full Body CT Scans
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.
What We Will Cover
In addition to heart and lung screenings, Preventative Diagnostic Center offers a full body scan.
We will scan from the thyroid to the abdomen/pelvis which can uncover kidney stones, gallstones, aneurysms, osteoporosis, hernias, prostate or ovarian enlargement, arthritis and degenerative changes of the spine and hips long before symptoms occur. It enables you to find and track very small abnormalities throughout the majority of your body including cardiovascular disease, stroke, and cancer.
