CT SCANNING: NON-INVASIVE AND PAINLESS
A non-invasive, painless medical test, CT scanning combines x-ray and computer technology to produce detailed images of the body. The major advantage of CT scanning is its ability to capture bone, soft tissue and blood vessels, making it ideal for a range of both preventive and diagnostic procedures.
CT scans are used to quickly and painlessly identify injuries or abnormalities of internal organs and are helpful in the early detection of lung cancer, colon cancer and heart disease.
CT HEART SCAN
Every year, there are an estimated 70,000 heart attacks in Canada. This non-invasive test detects and measures calcium build-up in the coronary arteries. It takes ten seconds and is a proven screening method to detect heart disease in people without symptoms.
Virtual colonoscopies are less invasive than conventional colonoscopies, but just as valid. They are used to detect early signs of colon cancer.
CT LUNG SCAN
In 2011, an estimated 25,300 Canadians were diagnosed with lung cancer. This non-invasive test identifies tumours one-tenth of the size of what can be detected with conventional x-rays.
CT DENTAL SCAN
This imaging technique provides images of the jaw and surrounding tissue for surgical planning of dental implants.
