Frank Maldonado of Life Guard Imaging joins us on July 20.

Our mission is to scan our patients annually through a long-term preventative program. Our low-radiation, high-resolution CT scanner creates 3D images of a patient’s internal organs, aiding in the detection of these deadly diseases before their first symptoms are felt. Early detection saves lives. For example, breast cancer is the most diagnosed cancer in America, yet it has the highest survival rate. Why? Early detection through annual mammograms.

Life Guard Imaging is a screening service that brings true awareness to annual health and wellness initiatives. We take the guesswork out of healthcare by providing three-dimensional images of the internal organs of the torso. The data produced by our scanners provide information that can’t be captured through basic blood cultures. It aids in detecting abnormalities that could be developing into potentially harmful health issues.

The earlier a physician finds a disease, the better a patient’s chance of survival. Your first scan is used as a baseline for all future scans, ensuring that if anything changes, you and your healthcare professionals can plan a course of action to treat the illness. Once again, early detection is the key.
