VIDEO From Siemens and Synaptic Digital: Not Your Father's X-Ray Machine

NEW YORK, Dec. 17, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Say so-long to the days of black and white 2-D X-rays and images. From CT, to MRI and PET, medical imaging is faster, more detailed, and three-dimensional and is revolutionizing the way medicine is practiced.  Thanks to years of improved imaging, today's scans can quickly and painlessly diagnose a life-threatening condition, often eliminating the need for costly and painful "exploratory surgeries."

Doctors use robotics, the latest scanners and 3-D technology to get the fastest and most accurate diagnosis.  Doctors say these scans are critical when it comes to detecting and treating certain diseases.  So what do patients need to consider before undergoing a scan?  Since these machines all look very similar, how are they different?  Is this innovative technology better than what was offered in the past? What kind of effect does this imaging have on the body?  Dr. Don Rucker, Vice President and Chief Medical Officer of Siemens Healthcare, is available to discuss the latest innovations in medical technology.
