In the old days, doctors sliced you open to examine your body. But today, with the help of powerful body imaging technology, they can look at “slices” of your anatomy without a scalpel.
Many body imaging devices follow a principle called tomography (the ‘T’ in CT, PET and SPECT systems), which take images of body “slices” using everything from projection data to powerful magnets. But have you ever wondered how such routine procedures can help clinicians see things that used to require a sharp knife? Watch how GE’s body imaging technology can paint a bigger picture of what’s happening beneath our skin.
Fighting cancer can feel like fighting a ghost. But sometimes, all it takes is a shift in perspective to help us find the answers we’ve been looking for.
Did you know that “cancer” is just a name for hundreds of different diseases? Makes diagnosis and treatment seem pretty tough. However, Clarient − a GE Healthcare company − is helping us better understand the unique behaviors of different types of cancer. Watch and learn how this new perspective is arming doctors with the knowledge they need to improve survival rates.
