We believe that early detection and prevention are key to protecting your health and longevity. The earlier disease is detected, the sooner healing can begin.

At the Dickinson & Gooding Center for Early Detection, we offer some of the most advanced diagnostic testing available for cancer, heart disease and osteoporosis.

Our state-of-the-art tools include:

  • Advanced genetic testing
  • Hemodynamic assessments
  • Diagnostic imaging

These tools, together with our lifestyle change program, enable us to offer advanced, customized treatment plans for body, mind and spirit.

Advanced diagnostic imaging: Discovery ST

We offer one of the most advanced PET and CT hybrid scanners available in Southern California.

In a single procedure that takes less than 30 minutes, the scanner measures metabolic, biochemical and functional activity in living tissue.

The PET scans show changes in the function, circulation and metabolism of body organs, while the CT images show tissue and anatomical data.

This combined information gives physicians a more complete and accurate diagnostic picture than PET or CT scanning alone, enabling them to better assess the extent and stage of disease and determine the best possible approach to treatment.
