How A Lung Cancer Screening Saved My Life

Early detection saves lives.

At Craft Body Scan, our mission is to save lives through early detection, and that’s why cancer screening is a big part of what we do. When caught in the early stages, a patient’s chances of survival dramatically improve. Scans can identify life-threatening abnormalities months or even years before symptoms even present themselves.

Types Of Cancer Screening 

  • Lung Cancer 
  • Colon Cancer 
  • Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma 
  • Pancreatic Cancer 
  • Kidney Cancer 
  • Thyroid Cancer 
  • Gastric Cancer 

Screening for Lung Cancer

Lung cancer is one of the most deadly cancers because patients are often not aware they have it until it is in an advanced stage that is difficult to treat. That’s why even if you are in good health, we encourage you to strongly consider receiving a lung cancer screening, especially if you have a history of smoking.

While other methods of lung cancer screening such as x-rays and sputum cytology have been commonly used in the past, results were limited and not shown to be beneficial in improving overall survival rates.

Low-Dose CT Scan - Lung Cancer Screening

We use a low-dose computed tomography (CT) scan of the chest. CT combines specialized x-ray equipment with computers that produce several cross-sectional images, revealing detailed information about the inside of the body. Importantly, and as the name suggests, CT scans use less ionizing than traditional scans, which is healthier for the patient.

The scan takes only a few minutes, and the results are helping people catch lung cancer in the early stages. There is no prep required for this scan. For high-risk patients, annual CT scans are highly beneficial, allowing for the greatest chance of early detection and peace of mind.

When your test is completed, you will be given a report of your results and one of our providers can help you determine next steps or schedule follow-up scans as required.

Screening for Colon Cancer

The Colorectal Cancer Alliance reports that colon cancer is the third most commonly diagnosed cancer and the second leading cause of cancer death in both men and women.

 Most cases of colon cancer begin as adenomatous polyps, which are noncancerous (benign) clumps. These polyps are typically small and cause few if any symptoms, which in a screening is recommended to look for and remove if they’re found.

Colon Cancer Testing

There are a few options to consider when testing for colon cancer: 
  1. Stool-based tests
  • Highly sensitive fecal immunochemical test
  • Multi-target stool DNA test
  • Highly sensitive guaiac-based fecal occult blood test
  1. Visual exams of the colon and rectum
  • Colonoscopy
  • CT colonography (virtual colonoscopy)
  • Flexible sigmoidoscopy (FSIG)

Virtual Colonoscopy

At Craft Body Scan, we offer a virtual colonoscopy. A CT scan of your colon generates an image of the colon and a high performance computer software program produces a three-dimensional virtual view of the colon, similar to what is seen during a conventional endoscopy.

This allows your physician to view the colon in a “fly-through” simulation. Even better, the process is fast, non-invasive and doesn’t require anesthesia. Your doctor can also stop and zoom in on specific areas of concern, take detailed measurements and much more.

Full-Body Scan - Screening for Cancer

  • Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma Screening
  • Pancreatic Cancer Screening 
  • Kidney Cancer Screening 
  • Thyroid Cancer Screening 
  • Gastric Cancer Screening

What is a full body scan?

Full body scans include a comprehensive coronary artery scan, a chest scan, and a scan of the abdomen and pelvis. A radiologist will later read the scans and examine the lungs, liver, spleen, gallbladder, pancreas, spine and kidneys, and look for tumors, anatomical abnormalities, and other signs of disease.

What does a full body scan show?

A body scan can see kidney stones, cysts, aortic aneurysms, calcium deposits within plaque in the coronary arteries, enlarged lymph nodes, nodules, large masses, an enlarged spleen, and a fatty liver in the abdomen region.

We use ultrafast advanced technology that provides a more accurate and detailed scan than conventional methods. These full body scans will detect signs of heart disease, cancer, and other abnormalities in the body. It can detect them long before these problems manifest with physical symptoms or pain.

What does a full body scan show?

Because the full-body scan will canvas all the major organs and look for any kind of tumor, mass, or anatomical abnormality in the body, many types of potential cancer can be identified including: Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, pancreatic cancer, kidney cancer, thyroid cancer, and gastric cancer.

Who is a good candidate for the full body scan?

“The right time to get scanned is when you don’t have symptoms. Research shows us that many forms of cancer have very high success rates when caught early. The bottom line is that you’re fine until you’re not, and by that time it’s often too late to treat. I could tell countless stories of lives that have been saved by early detection, and that’s why we’re passionate about what we do.”

– Dr. Jason Schroder, Medial Director

While we encourage all healthy, asymptomatic patients to consider a scan, full-body scans are especially recommended if the patient is at high-risk of cancer due to family history, or any known lifestyle or occupational risks such as certain pesticide or chemical exposures etc.

What happens if the scan detects possible cancer?

All scan results are read by a board-certified radiologist and then made available in the Craft Medical Records System dashboard, typically within a week. If you have any questions about your scan results, please call our office and we will be happy to help. If your scan contains an abnormal finding, we recommend that our patients take their results to their primary care provider immediately for additional testing and specialized referrals as these may be necessary and time sensitive. At Craft Body Scan, we are here to help save lives, and we’re honored to be part of your journey to a future of better health and wellness.
