From BOO BOOS to BREAKS to the most complex disorders, get PEACE OF MIND with an advanced supplemental scan for a second opinion or to detect other potential (unforeseen) issues that may be related to the initial problem-such as a wood splinter that was missed on the x ray. Regularly scheduled checkups, monitoring and supplemental scanning are all part of our patients' lifestyles under early detection and prevention. For our younger generation of patients, more doctors have grown to rely and collaborate with us for our effective and non-invasive scanning advancement to deliver the most comprehensive reports on our patients' issues and potential complications that may come from them.

BDI is a NYC-based facility are equipped with only the most advanced state-of-the-art technologies that may provide an expanded array of health reports while promising to deliver more affordable and accurate reports in REAL-TIME from a process that's ready in MINUTES. Otherwise known as the "Digital Stethoscope", the Doppler ultrasound is part of the growing set of modern solutions harnessed for today's pediatric care. We have isolated and scanned countless cases of pediatric issues- within MINUTES. For our patients, this is a priceless advantage that cuts down the wait time, decreases travel (to multiple diagnostic centers) and reduces the insurmountable level of stress and intolerable problems of today’s increasing medical bureaucracy. Our technology outperforms the advantages of MRI, X-ray and CT scans by 20-to-1. We have an uncompromising system that’s unique to the health care profession whereby our combined experience and technical advancements are called upon by many university hospitals and private practices today.

The pediatric branch of the Bard Diagnostic Imaging Center offers state-of-the-art, non-invasive and real-time scanning solutions focused in supporting children's medical diagnostic needs. Our professional clinical team is led by recognized cancer radiologist, Dr. Robert L Bard who dedicated his career to qualifying only the safest, most accurate screening and monitoring innovations for the most complex disorders and pathologies.

All our patients (especially our littlest ones) appreciate the zero-stress experience of an ultrasound scan. In 15 minutes or less, we capture hundreds of quantitative images in real time and our patients value the true-motion projection of our 3D doppler scan. Dr. Bard profoundly calls this modality "PATIENT PARTICIPATION DIAGNOSTICS" where the patient can hold (and place) the probe on the body to best locate the exact area of concern where the pain or discomfort exists such as a bruised rib masquerading as a punctured lung.

Meanwhile, today's ultrasound carries major advancements to capture a wide array of issues from cysts to cancer tumors, subdermal anomalies and foreign bodies, inflammation and musculoskeletal disorders. The Doppler science is integrated into the ultrasound infrastructure to enable quantitative HEMODYNAMIC studies- or the study of BLOOD FLOW. This allows us to acquire optimum data on the abnormal physiology and gain new analytical advantage in the source of the disorder, its current status and even identify what can happen next- based on the surrounding injury or growth as in the case of Covid-19 pulmonary pathologies.

This innovation uses unique forms of sonography to evaluate blood flow related to tumor activity and to identify areas of suspicious inflammation. More tumor or inflammatory vessels signifies more aggressive disease. 3D analysis is non-invasive and rapid with quantifiable results available to the patient during the visit. Patients in need of reassurance and world class imaging come from all countries for cancers of the prostate, breast, skin, thyroid and melanoma. For more info, visit: www.CancerScan.com. .

DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) makes up the genes that contain the blueprint for how our bodies operate ‐ from energy production in mitochondria to walking and breathing, from cellular health to digesting food, from thinking and running to protection from viruses, how we age and more. While humans are 99.9% alike in our DNA, it's the difference in that 0.1% that makes us each unique. Much of that difference comes from millions of small changes in our DNA. Genomic testing focuses on these small changes in DNA called single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) that potentially predispose to disease or problems with medications by altering the body's biochemistry. But knowing about these potential areas of weakness is just the first step. The powerful part is that we know how to modulate their impact, thus potentially changing the outcome by reversing course, delaying onset or even preventing a disease process altogether.

By decoding the instructions contained in DNA, each person becomes empowered with their own operating manual as to what they need for health. They can let go of the struggle as their blueprint guides them to the diet, lifestyle, exercise, supplements and medications that are best suited to their genes. And because we are only human, when life throws a curveball, having this personalized roadmap helps to get back on track much faster and with more precision.

Nutrigenomics evaluates DNA to provide personalized diet, lifestyle, supplement and exercise recommendations for prevention and disease management strategies. Oncogenomics is a sub-field of genomics that characterizes cancer-associated genes. It focuses on genomic, epigenomic and transcript alterations in cancer. Pharmacogenomics evaluates DNA to provide personalized medication guidance for current and/or future medications.

In 1982, continued advancement led to the Transcranial Doppler (TCD) ultrasonography for outpatient and inpatient settings. By integrating the ability to study BLOOD FLOW into a low-frequency transducer, placing the probe on the temporal area measures the cerebral arteries to detect cerebrovascular activities, diseases and brain injuries. Other applications include the diagnoses of vasospasm (VSP) after an aneurysm rupture, hemorrhage or hemodynamic changes after ischemic or cryptogenic stroke. It also enables the study of cranial pressure fluctuations. TCD also offers significant clinical benefits in the monitoring of sickle-cell disease by raised intracranial stenosis and elevated intracranial pressure (ICP). Added features allow for surgical and post-op monitoring of vasomotor functions as well as detecting critical disorders like microembolism.

For children, this specific exam modality is critically valuable in offering potential disorders that may otherwise go undetected from other tests and scans.

HEALTH ALERT: Skin Reactions Potentially Linked to Heavy Metal Contamination
In a recent study, exposure to heavy metal poisoning in families have shown to occur from a significant exposure to certain metals in the air, water or digested materials. Both parents and children have shown common links to heavy metal evidence in the body - from ARSENIC, LEAD and MERCURY. They are recognized to cause a wide range of health issues and even death and others. Poisoning can happen if you eat or drink something tainted with heavy metals or if you breathe in contaminated dust or fumes.

Inorganic arsenic is a confirmed carcinogen and is the most significant chemical contaminant in drinking‐water globally...and are highly toxic. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), people are exposed to elevated levels of inorganic arsenic through drinking contaminated water, food preparation and irrigation of food crops, industrial processes... and is used industrially in the processing of glass, pigments, textiles, paper, metal adhesives, wood preservatives, ammunition, and, to a limited extent, in pesticides, feed additives and pharmaceuticals.

The most common reason for long-term exposure is contaminated drinking water. Groundwater most often becomes contaminated naturally; however, contamination may also occur from mining or agriculture. It may also be found in the soil and air. Recommended levels in water are less than 10–50 µg/L (10–50 parts per billion). Other routes of exposure include toxic waste sites and traditional medicines. Most cases of poisoning are accidental. Arsenic acts by changing the functioning of around 200 enzymes. Diagnosis is by testing the urine, blood, or hair. [1][3][5]

Many routine imaging procedures can assure patients that they are at risk for a disease or catastrophic medical event: heart scans, virtual colonoscopies, and lung screening are a few examples of ways to encourage healthy choices (nutrition, supplements, exercise, stress management, etc.) by reinforcing them. When it comes to cancer diagnostics, our Pediatric Imaging branch is committed to supporting evidence-based strategies based on clear, accurate imaging . We also specialize in PREVENTION solutions for our patients who strive to maintain a health-conscious lifestyle as well as those who are at increased risk of certain diseases (hereditary factors or environmental exposure to toxic substances) by confirming that their efforts to prevent disease are working. The era of non-invasive technologies where identifying what's under the skin no longer needs to be about cutting into it. The age of robotics, artificial intelligence (AI), highly developed laser applications and advanced sonic diagnostic protocols are all fast replacing the age-old scalpel as part of risk reduction, time/cost advantages and increased performance in the world of clinical diagnostics and medical treatment.

Imaging technologies like the 4D Doppler Ultrasound™ can accurately and successfully scan, study and fully diagnose any skin anomalies and sharply view what's going on underneath. Dermatologic imaging specialists worldwide use these innovations with the most current devices to deliver accurate readings while bringing significant reduction to patient stress by a scan that takes mere minutes! Just some of the cases under Pediatric CancerScan include:

• RETINOBLASTOMA: An eye cancer that begins in the back of the eye (retina), most commonly in children.

• CHILDHOOD SOFT TISSUE SARCOMA (BONE CANCER):  a disease in which malignant (cancer) cells form in soft tissues of the body. Inherited disorders can increase the risk of childhood soft tissue

• CHILDHOOD LEUKEMIA / Malignant Lymph Nodes: the most common type of cancer in children and teens- is a cancer of the white blood cells forming in the bone marrow.

• NEUROBLASTOMA is a rare childhood cancer, commonly arises in and around the adrenal glands, which sits atop the kidneys. Potential metastasis to the brain.

• WILMS TUMOR (nephroblastoma) is a type of childhood cancer that starts in the kidneys. It is the most common type of kidney cancer in children.

• SCREENING & MONITORING of treatment side effects

A 2021-2022 REVIEW

Clinical studies and public reports indicate a recent national rise in Acute MYOCARDITIS cases in children and teens with the risk as high as 35+ times for children infected with Covid-19. [1][2] Scientific statements by the AHA indicate that viral infection is the #1 cause of inflammation in the heart muscle (the myocardium) weakening the heart's performance and electrical system. Severe cases can result in abnormal heart rhythms, heart failure or shock. Minimally or non-invasive testing is available to detect the presence of myocarditis including blood tests or medical imaging to scan for visible injury to the heart muscle or abnormalities in heart function (pericarditis) [3]. It is recommended to maintain regular checkups for children and watch for sudden fatigue, shortness of breath, fever, chest pain and palpitations . (See complete Myocarditis section)

This program is a simple plan to keep cancer away- or increase the likelihood of beating cancer with the comprehensive Early Detection & Prevention plan. In each case, much can be done to prevent the current stage. The first step is to GET MORE FAMILIAR WITH YOURSELF.

• Take account of your child's genetic lineage: risk of complex health issues (including cancers) increase upon heredity. The first place to look is within your own DNA or family history. Many issues tend to travel down generations. It can also have the tendency to skip one generation and appear in the next one. (see expanded feature: "INHERITING CANCER" in Journal of Modern Healing )

• Periodic Checking for any anomalies Children get bumps and bruises. To all parents, education in discerning the kind of lumps, bumps, discolored bruises or growths that can be of concern should mean an immediate call to your pediatrician. Also stay on top of your child's unusual feelings like frequent headaches, unique pains and strains- anything that feels out of the ordinary. Take nothing for granted when it comes to your body.

• Know your child's environment: Many health issues are known to be caused by environmental toxins. Where you sleep, eat and work could be affecting how you feel later. Some health hazards are fairly visible and apparent while others may need some historical research in your area where there may have been potential chemical wastes or spills in the past. If you know of such issues, further research, demographic studies, protective measures and targeted checkups may be your next step.
