Invisibility Is Cancer's Greatest Weapon. Ezra's MRI Scan Changes That.
Rather than wait for symptoms to present and disease to progress, Ezra provides early insight into what is going on inside your body. They explain what was found, why it's important, and what you should do about it. They provide the knowledge to empower you to make positive changes and informed decisions about your healthcare journey. Also, being aware of recent statistics may inspire your decision to have a full-body scan. For example, a recent study by the Mayo Clinic found that up to two-thirds of senior patients have potentially pathologic findings on their scans, which would not have been detected otherwise. Further, for 2023, the American Cancer Society (ACS) Cancer Statistics Center estimates there will be nearly 10,000 new cancer cases in Nevada. Early detection is crucial to your healthcare and can help you to have peace of mind. Does knowing these statistics motivate you to want to gain an understanding of what is going on inside your body? If so, Ezra offers three types of full-body scans to learn about your physical body's baseline information. The following imaging procedure is offered at SDMI:
· Ezra Full-Body screens the brain, spine, thyroid, gallbladder, pancreas, spleen, liver, kidney, adrenal glands, bladder, ovaries/uterus, or prostate.
Having just read the above, you may have a few questions that come to mind. Here are some of the frequently asked questions (FAQs) mentioned on Ezra’s website.
Q. Why is the heart not included in the Ezra Full Body?
A. Visualizing the heart requires special sequences, slices and time required by a dedicated cardiac MRI, and thus we can generally only comment on heart size.
Q. Do normal Ezra Scanresults mean that I definitely do not have cancer?
A. No medical study is100% perfect, so a normal scan does not guarantee there is no cancer. A veryearly cancer may need time to grow in size before it can become detectable on ascan. However, Ezra has been shown to be highly effective in screening forabnormalities. For example, our service has found potential early cancerssmaller than 1 cm.
