What is a virtual physical?
As the name implies, a Virtual Physical is a comprehensive diagnostic screening procedure that uses state-of-the-art technology to take a global look at your body and identify a variety of conditions at early stages where intervention can be most helpful. A Virtual Physical may also be viewed as an integral component of a holistic, behavioral medicine program, where the body, and one's diet, exercise, and lifestyle habits are viewed as a whole, determining where problems may exist and where changes may be required. Our board-certified radiologists will help you understand the results of your Virtual Physical, and direct you to the appropriate healthcare professional should follow-up action be required.
A Virtual Physical is a non-invasive procedure that uses precise pictures of the body and organs to screen for cancer, heart disease, and a host of conditions that may not present symptoms until its too late. A Virtual Physical is an excellent complement to the traditional care given by your physician. A traditional physical will normally include a blood draw, perhaps an EKG, and a physical examination, and is an important component to sound preventative care. A Virtual Physical goes deeper, identifying microscopic amounts of arterial plaque, small tumors, cysts, or abscesses, and other minor abnormalities that may benefit from early treatment. The results of a Virtual Physical can assist your physician in assessing your health and implementing the best care.
The Peace of Mind of Knowing
Many of the patients getting Virtual Physicals will leave with the peace of mind of knowing that they are currently in good health, and have a baseline against which to measure future results. A percentage of patients, however, will have a health concern brought to light by the Virtual Physical exam. Fortunately, the vast majority of these concerns are detected at a time when corrective action can avoid a more serious consequence. Since our inception as a company, Virtual Physical has saved hundreds of lives, and contributed to the improved health of thousands of appreciative patients.
