Body Scanner Installed Schumpert Medical Center has installed a second computed tomography (CT) whole body scanner in its radiology department, according to adminis-trator Sister Mary Agneita. CT scanning is a dramatic technique which permits direct visualizaton of body tissue. The procedure literally represents a "slice" through the anatomy being examined; conventional X-rays, in comparison, provide only shadows which outline various internal structures on film. Since X-rays must penetrate through the entire body to reach the film, the structures are stacked atop each other in the image. CT scans assist the physician in diagnosing disease in many areas of the body, including chest, Most non-dairy subs high in saturated fats By JOE GRAEDON Q. Several months ago my doctor put me on a special diet to reduce the levels of fat in my blood. At first I didn't think I could stand it, but my wife is a genius in the kitchen and has managed to make low-cholesterol fare taste delicious. Knowing my special weakness she even make low-fat desserts. She often serves these delights with a glob of non-dairy whipped cream, and this is People's Pharmacy starting to make me nervous. The brochure my doctor gave me says to avoid any kind of whipped cream, but my wife insists that what she's using cjuldn't possible hurt me since it doesn't have any real cream in it. I hate to make a fuss for nothing, but I do want to follow the diet carefully. Is this non-dairy whipped cream safe? A. You are smart to be cautious. Most non-dairy substitutes for cream contain coconut oil, which is high in saturated fats. As a result, whether you pour it into coffee, spoon it onto your baked potato as "sour cream" or garnish a dessert as your wife does, that non-dairy product may provide as much saturated fat as if you used the real thing. In fact, some of these substitutes may be even higher in fat than their dairy-derived equivalents, which explains why they appear on your doctor's list. You'd be better off sticking with the dessert and skipping the topping. Got a question?

The equipment also has useful applications in planning for radiation thera-py- Most CT studies can be conducted on an outpa-tient basis. They are considered to be non-invasive procedures, though it sometimes might be de-sirable to use a benign contrast dye to enchance the image. Entirely painless, the CT offers the poten-tial for locating serious organic disorders which might never have been diagnosed before.

And parents of chil-dren already in school are advised to check re-cords to make sure the students are up-to-date with their immuniza-tions. Many junior high and high school students are due for boosters and may not be protected against measles and r u b e l l a (German measles), health depart-ment officials say. The Student Health Form for Registration (shown above) pub-lished by the Depart-ment of Health and Hu-man Resources, Office of Health and Environ-mental Quality, is the authorized and recom-mended form to by used by students for school entry. The form, marked complete or in progress, must be vali-dated by a health unit, military installation or private physician and presented to the school principal at the time of registration. Immunization re-quirements are pro-vided for by State Bill No. 140, Act 360 of the 1976 Louisiana State Legislature. Section 170 of Title 17 of the Louisi-ana Revised Statues of 1950 is amended and re-enacted to read: "Im-munization of children entering any school within the state for the first time, including kindergarten, at the time of registering or entering school, or licensed day care cen-ters, shall present satis-factory evidence of hav-ing been immunized against diphtheria, tetanus, whooping cough, poliomyelities, measles and other com-municable diseases ac-cording to the schedule approved by the state division of health or present evidence of an immunization program in progress." The State Health De-partment warns that parents who take an apathetic attitude in having their children immunized and pro-tected against com-municable diseases are taking a chance with their children's lives and health.
