Potentially deadly diseases such as cancer, heart disease, and multiple sclerosis are getting much easier to spot in the earlier phases of infection; this is due to the rapidly increasing technology of medical imaging and nuclear medicine services. Medical imaging uses gamma raise, sonic sounds, lasers, and other technologies to map and display images of the human body. These images are then used to diagnose, recognize, and give prognosis for various diseases and maladies. By catching these diseases early on, treatments can be more effective, and can promote remission and even cures.
Of the most popular machines and types of imaging used in most hospitals and medical centers across the United States, there are a few that stand out as staples, for their brilliant imaging capabilities.
- CT Scanners
- Gamma Cameras
- PET Scanners
- Cardiac PETs
- Siemens ECAM
