Why Virtual Imaging, Inc.
The most significant advances in diagnostic medicine today are in the area of medical imaging. ‘Virtual’ examinations (Full Body Scans) of internal organs are now a reality. Technology alone, however, does not provide better outcomes for patients. The skill and experience of physicians are necessary to help patients transform this new information into a useful, cohesive plan. At Virtual Imaging Inc, we recognize the importance of this relationship. We provide accurate information; your physician provides the appropriate treatment. And that’s only part of why you should choose Virtual Imaging, Inc.
How We Do It
Unique, State-of-the-Art Technology
One of the most exciting new imaging modalities is the LDCT, developed by GE, the world’s leader in medical imaging. These advanced machines were the first approved by the FDA for routine lung cancer screenings. Our scanners offer three-dimensional CT images up to 10 times faster than traditional CT scanners, allowing for high-resolution images of the heart, vascular system, chest, lungs, spine, abdomen, bowel, and other organs. Its unprecedented speed during a Full Body Scan allows for shorter exposure times, so the radiation exposure is remarkably low. This technology is only available in Georgia at Virtual Imaging, Inc.
A great number of doctors in Georgia and beyond refer patients to Virtual Imaging, Inc. These doctors recognize the value and accuracy of the information attained through LDCT scanning technology, enabling them to provide a more detailed diagnosis and better care for their patients.

You may never suffer a single symptom with early detection. Just as you plan for your retirement and your family’s future, take this opportunity to plan your health future.
From the Experts
“Coronary Artery Screening provides a window of opportunity to reverse or prevent progression of the atherosclerotic process.”
Warren Janowitz, M.D.
Medical Director of Nuclear Medicine Baptist Hospital of Miami, Florida
“Coronary calcium detected by electron beam tomography is currently the most powerful tool available for noninvasive assessment of coronary artery atherosclerosis in asymptomatic individuals. It allows conscious decisions to be made to improve cardiovascular risk in view of the objective coronary pathology. It can improve a person’s odds in the cardiac lottery of life before a sudden heart attack or death. It documents the cumulative effect of all coronary risk factors, conventional and those not yet known.”
