A non-invasive, accurate alternative to traditional colon cancer screenings.
Prevention has never been easier – with a non-invasive virtual colonoscopy that gives you better results than the traditional method.
A GE Optima CT scan of your colon generates an image of the colon and a high performance computer software program generates a virtual three-dimensional view of the colon, similar to what is seen during a conventional endoscopy. However, as opposed to using an optical scope, your physician can view the colon in a “fly-through” simulation. Your doctor can also stop and zoom in on specific areas of concern, take detailed measurements and much more.
Better yet, a virtual colonoscopy at Advanced Body Scan is a fast (generally under 15 minutes), non-invasive test with minimal prep. Anesthesia is not required.
Catch cancer early and live a long, healthy life
Colon cancer deaths have gone down by 35 percent since the early 1990s, thanks to preventive screenings.
Although as many as 80 percent of colorectal-related deaths are caused by treatable colorectal cancer, it remains one of the three leading causes of cancer-related deaths in America. More than 50,000 Americans will die this year from this disease.
The majority of these people could be saved if their disease had been caught early.
Colon cancer affects men and women of all racial and ethnic groups and is most often found in people 50 years or older. It is the third most common cancer in the United States, behind only lung and prostate cancers in men and lung and breast cancers in women and is the second leading cause of cancer death.
A virtual colon cancer screening
Colon cancer, when discovered early, is highly treatable. Even if it spreads into nearby lymph nodes, surgical treatment, followed by chemotherapy, is highly successful.
Colon cancer screenings, like a virtual colonoscopy at Advanced Body Scan in Oklahoma City, save lives. So please, take control of your life and your health. If you’re turning 50 or are experiencing abnormal symptoms, get a virtual colonoscopy and urge those you love to do the same. Contact us today!
