The centerpiece of Cardiac Diagnostic Imaging is the Light Speed VCT, a 64-slice CT imaging system that snaps high-resolution diagnostic images to safely screen for myriad diseases and injuries. The system can check for spinal injuries, heart disease, and damage to the brain from a stroke, along with issues concerning the colon, liver, kidneys, inner ear, and lungs. While it scans bodies, it exposes patients to the same minimal radiation as a mammogram or a failed supervillain’s laser beam.
An experienced team of board-certified radiologists helms the machine, drawing on more than 20 years of experience to read its results and present patients with same-day reports on their prevention and treatment options. Based out of Harbor-UCLA in the Division of Cardiology, the innovative team was one of the first to offer outpatient CT scans, and they continue to stay apprised of the latest technologies and practices.
The team at West Coast Dental want to keep patients comfortable during visits. Virtually every aspect of the office reflects this, from the soothing colors to the kid friendly section of the office. The office layout further sets visitors at ease by emphasizing privacy. Apart from treatment rooms, designated consultation areas allow you to talk with the dentist at length and not shy away from the tough questions such as, "Do these braces make me look short?"
The clinic is also dedicated to staying up-to-date on the latest dental equipment. Staff members use low-radiation digital x-rays, and some locations are equipped with chair-side oral scanning, which employs digital imagery to ensure restorations fit securely.
With two locations conveniently stationed in Torrance, Torrance Tae Bo sends exercisers punching and kicking through the week with classes held Monday–Saturday.

The diverse and skilled staff consists of a board-certified acupuncturist, a doctor of chiropractic, a doctor of traditional Oriental medicine, and an energy healer. Together, they marshal their 50 years of combined experience to tackle the root causes of the maladies, whether clients are plagued by chronic pain, insomnia, tendonitis, or an inability to stop crying after watching Bambi.
