MRIs, PETs and CTs: The Ins and Outs of Today's Imaging Techniques
Thursday, January 31, 2008
Come and learn about the science behind the many different imaging techniques being used to diagnose and treat disease today. “X-rays to Imaging: Questions and Answers about Modern Radiology,” will be held 4 - 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 12 at The Highlands at Pittsford’s Hahnemann Club, 301 Stoutenburgh Lane, off Hahnemann Trail.
Over the past 25 years, imaging has progressed from simple X-rays to a multitude of sophisticated techniques. As a result, patients today have greater access to more specialized imaging techniques. John Strang, M.D., associate professor of Imaging Sciences at the University of Rochester Medical Center, will host an informative seminar on the major kinds of diagnostic imaging commonly used, such as X-rays, CAT scans, Ultrasound, MRI, PET/CT and image-guided procedures. Strang will discuss how and where the images are made, what the patient experiences, how images are stored and viewed, and how improved diagnostics translates into better care.
There is no charge for the seminar, though reservations are requested as space is limited. Call 275-2838 to reserve your seat.
This event is the first of “To Your Health!,” a new lecture series sponsored by The Highlands at Pittsford and University of Rochester Medical Center. “To Your Health!” will offer a variety of free health and wellness presentation to help inspire and educate active older adults.
