Preventative Cancer Screening in Japan

Kameda Medical Centre in the Chiba Prefecture in Kamogawa City, Japan has invested in progressive preventative screening technologies that can detect cancer in the early stages. The Kameda Medical Center’s total body cancer examination utilizes PET-CT scanning and other diagnostic testing procedures to detect the early stages of malignancy in the body.
The benefits of preventative screening

The incidence of cancer rates worldwide is ever increasing, and across the globe people are seeking answers about the condition of their health. Regular screening helps to find cancers before symptoms appear. If affected cells are detected early, treatment is more effective and can save lives.

What is PET-CT?

PET-CT is an advanced imaging technology that can detect small cancers that may have been previously missed. Combining PET (positron emission tomography) and CT (computed tomography) technologies is a highly effective way to check for cancer. These technologies can identify high glucose consumption lesions and accurately represent anatomical details of the human body. The combination of these two technologies in one machine is the most modern approach to diagnostic imaging.
