IS A FULL BODY SCANNER?
full-body scan is a scan of the
patient's entire body as part of the diagnosis
or treatment of illnesses. If computed
scan technology is used, it is known as
a full-body CT scan, though many
medical imaging technologies can perform
CT scans allow a transparent view of the
body. For polytrauma
patients, aggressive use of full-body
CT scanning improves early diagnosis of
injury and improves survival rates.
CT scans are not indicated in patients
with minor or single system trauma, and
should be avoided in such patients.
possible malignancies are discovered with
a full-body scan, but these are almost

full-body scan has the potential to identify
disease (e.g. cancer)
in early stages, and early identification
can improve the success of curative efforts.
Controversy arises from the use of full-body
scans in the screening
of patients who have no signs or symptoms
suggestive of a disease.
As with any test that screens for disease,
the risks of full-body CT scans need to
be weighed against the benefit of identifying
a treatable disease at an early stage.

resonance imaging (MRI) scans. These
are associated without a radiation risk
compared to CT scans, and are being evaluated
for their use in screening.
to most other diagnostic imaging procedures,
CT scans result in relatively high radiation
exposure. This exposure may be associated
with a very small increase in cancer risk.
The question is whether that risk is outweighed

procedures are relatively expensive. Possibly
high cost: At a cost of US$600
to $3000, full-body scans are expensive,
and are rarely covered by insurance.
However, in December 2007, the IRS
stated that full-body scans qualify as
deductible medical expenses, without a
doctor's referral. This will likely lead

the episode "Role
Model" of the TV show House
the lead character Dr.
Gregory House refers to full-body
scans as "useless" because, in his words,
"you could probably scan every one of
us and find fifty doo-dads that look
like cancer". This issue was revisited
in a later episode, "The
Social Contract", where a full-body
scan was successfully used to identify
a tumor and diagnose Doege-Potter
syndrome. Then in "Black
Hole", House orders a full-body
scan over the objections of his team,
