Some things you should know

The principle cause of death in the United States is from Coronary Artery Disease (Heart Disease) but the greatest fear of death comes from Cancer. Most Cancers are caused by abnormalities in the genetic material of cells. This frequently occurs due to the effects of carcinogens such as tobacco, radiation, chemicals, infectious agents and the terrible mix of silica and the multiple contaminants like those from the World Trade Center collapse. A poor immune system will make one even more vulnerable to Cancers. There were many civilians exposed to this disaster not just first responders so it is no surprise that so many have fallen victim to Cancers.

TEST 1 Inner Imaging has worked with members of the police, and fire departments for the last 22 years and we too have seen our share of patients with Cancer. Our Body Scan screens for disease and has identified 190 separate and distinct diseases. We have also had 13 forms of Cancer confirmed. The Cancers that have been confirmed after using our Body Scan were as follows:

  • Thyroid Cancer
  • Lung Cancers
  • Liver Cancer
  • Kidney Cancer
  • Duodenal Cancer
  • Prostate Cancer
  • Stomach Cancer
  • Uterus Cancer
  • Small Bowel Cancer
  • Colon Cancer
  • Rectal Cancer
  • Hairy Cell Leukemia
  • Birt-Hogg-Dube

Early detection saves lives.

TEST 2 Inner Imaging introduced the first Cancer Screening Panel for Law Enforcement and Firefighters using biomarkers. It is named after Detective Corey Diaz (NYPD) who died of Pancreatic Cancer. The purpose of this blood panel is to look for markers which suggest that Cancer may be present.

*This test is not performed in our office but at BioReference Labs, a list is available*

The Cancer Panel tests for the following:

  • CA19-9, Serum (Proposed as a marker for Pancreatic Carcinoma)
  • CA 125 (Proposed as a marker for Ovarian Cancer)
  • CEA (Measures a protein in the blood for certain kinds of Cancers)
  • Alpha Fetoprotein (Tumor Marker)
  • Amylase Serum (Acute Chronic Pancreatitis)
  • CMP (Tests for Diabetes)
  • GGT (Tests for three forms of liver disease)
The CT Screening at Inner Imaging P.C. is recommended by:
  • American Heart Association
  • American College of Cardiology Foundation
  • Journal of American College of Cardiology
  • Society of Atherosclerotic Imaging
  • The SHAPE Study
  • St. Francis Heart Study
  • Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis
  • Association of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography
  • American Society of Nuclear Medicine
  • National Cholesterol Education Program
  • American College of Cardiology Appropriateness Criteria
  • Long Term Prognosis of Coronary Calcium
  • New England Journal of Medicine
