This feature provides the opportunity for screening for early detection of lung cancer. We continue the tradition, however, with the newest software, in the diagnostics of the colon – virtual colonoscopy; dental scanner in Implantology; all types of angiographic tests. All apparatus are connected in a PACS system, which provides the opportunity for storing the images and monitoring the effect from treatment.
