On October 18, we are joined by Virtual Imaging to discuss early detection of cardiovascular disease. We are also joined by Linda McIver, founder and president of 2U Medical, to discuss concierge medicine.
Why Virtual Imaging, Inc.
The most significant advances in diagnostic medicine today are in the area of medical imaging. ‘Virtual’ examinations (Full Body Scans) of internal organs are now a reality. Technology alone, however, does not provide better outcomes for patients. The skill and experience of physicians are necessary to help patients transform this new information into a useful, cohesive plan. At Virtual Imaging Inc, we recognize the importance of this relationship. We provide accurate information; your physician provides the appropriate treatment. And that’s only part of why you should choose Virtual Imaging, Inc.
Unique, State-of-the-Art Technology
One of the most exciting new imaging modalities is the EBCT 300 developed by Imatron technologies, the world’s leader in medical imaging. The C300 offers three dimensional CT images up to 10 times faster than traditional CT scanners, allowing for high-resolution images of the heart, vascular system, chest, lungs, spine, abdomen, bowel and other organs. Its unprecedented speed during a Full Body Scan allows for shorter exposure times so the radiation exposure is remarkably low. This technology is only available in the state of Georgia at the imaging center of Virtual Imaging, Inc.
A great number of doctors in Georgia and beyond refer patients to Virtual Imaging. These doctors recognize the value and accuracy of the information attained through EBCT scanning technology as it enables them to provide a more detailed diagnosis and take better care of their patients.
Safety, Service, Comfort
Virtual health scans and diagnostic imaging pose no risk of complications from anesthesia or invasive procedures. You’ll be served promptly, courteously in comfort and privacy. We’ll take the time to answer your questions and explain all aspects of our procedures. You and your doctor receive a detailed report of findings and recommendations.
Smart Use of Your Health Dollar
Sickness is costly. There is always a high cost whether in quality of life or dollars spent on deductibles, lost productivity, medication or special diets. Chances are, you have nothing to worry about and that valuable peace of mind feels WONDERFUL! But if there is a problem, early intervention is nearly always cheaper, more successful- you may never suffer a symptom. Just as you plan for your retirement and your family’s future, take this opportunity to plan your health future.
