Medical Imaging Catches Disease Quicker

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
  • Cardio MD
  • Biograph 16
 As these devices and scanners become more prevalent in medical centers, the overall cost of purchasing and maintaining and servicing the machines begins to drop. When the price of the machines drop, the price of the individual medical scans, pictures, or reports also go down. When the price of scans drops, then scans become more affordable for patients, and more patients will receive medical scans more often. This will greatly affect the number of patients who are diagnosed with potentially terminal diseases at an early enough time to allow for successful treatment.
