What is a body scan?
Advanced Body Scan uses General Electric CT technology for body scans. Their cutting-edge screening method provides an overall assessment of your physical health to help you establish a baseline for your general wellness.
During this scan, the machine captures detailed images from your shoulders to your thighs that include scans of your chest, coronary arteries, abdomen, and pelvis.
After having a body scan, our licensed radiologist and medical doctor review your images to look for signs of disease or abnormalities in your:
- Prostate gland
- And more
A body scan can also capture issues or irregularities in your spine.
What can a body scan detect?
A body scan can detect a wide range of health problems long before any symptoms arise, including cancer and heart disease. Because the GE Optima™ and Revolution™ CT scanners can capture multiple images within a single heartbeat, a body scan can reveal several difficult-to-diagnose conditions.
What can I expect during a body scan?
A GE CT body scan is quick and painless, and takes 15-20 minutes. Because your body scan is noninvasive, you don’t have to prepare in advance by fasting or stopping any medications. You simply lie comfortably in the scanner, which is open in design so it doesn’t cause claustrophobia, unlike traditional scanners.
After your body scan, our board-certified radiologist reads your images and prepares your report. This summary outlines any issues that may require additional action.
