Scanning can help for many different reasons: screening for Autonomic Neuropathy should be instituted at Diagnosis of Type 2 Diabetes and 5 years after the diagnosis of type 1 Diabetes – 2005 ADA Standard of Diabetes Care, surveys show that only 2% of people with diabetes are tested for cardiovascular autonomic neuropathy (CAN), according to Published Studies Cardiovascular autonomic neuropathy occurs in about 17% of patients with type 1 diabetes and 22% of those with type 2, a patient’s history and physical examination are ineffective for early detection of CAN and therefore noninvasive tests that have demonstrated efficacy are required, and of patients with symptomatic autonomic dysfunction, 25% to 50% die within 1 to 5 years of diagnosis.
Scanning helps patients through evaluating their current health situation such as symptoms, medications, and therapy reactions. It can also lead to the initiation of a physician’s focus on treating the onset of chronic situations or severity of the diseases, evaluation of the prognosis and treatment outcomes, identification of abnormalities in the cardiovascular and cerebrovascular system, and overall health assessment. Blood circulatory status can also be found in scans, which covers the age of blood vessels based on arterial elasticity, peripheral circulatory status, and organic/functional abnormality of the blood vessels. Scans can also help with the prediction and progression of arteriosclerosis, obesity, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, and diabetes, and are overall useful as a health barometer.
