Post Body Scans

Does anyone know how effective and ACCURATE body scans are? I hear that they can give you readings stating that there are problems when in fact there really isn't causing not only the patient a huge dent in the pocketbook, but also the possibility of having unneccessary surgery. Anyone have experience with Body Scans?

Gees....I guess one never is quite sure as to who is out to make money! But, I agree with you, that is an odd response coming from a doctor! I wwould have thought doctors would push something like that. Thanks for your response. I am curious to see what others say to this post. Thanks again!
