A CT or CAT (computed tomography) scan combines X-ray and computer technology to show highly detailed, 3-D images of any part of the body, including bones, muscles, fat, organs and blood vessels. Scans can also be performed using a contrast solution (either swallowed or injected) to make tissues and vessels more visible.
Leading-edge CT technology
The Aquilion 64 CT scanner capture precise images of any area of the body in as little as fifteen seconds. Its multi-slice technology captures precise images of the body's rapidly, which can appear blurry when scanned by a traditional CT.
The Aquilion 64 CT scanner provides physicians with the most comprehensive information available meaning that problems are spotted sooner and patients recieve care faster. With the Aquilion 64-Multislice CT Scanner, physicians are seeing more anatomical information in greater detail and with more clarity than previously thought possible, which means a better diagnosis of problems such as blood clots, infections, and cancer. And best of all, the 64-Slice CT Scanner's design features a highly efficient ceramic material that is able to reduce overall radiation exposure to our patients and our staff.
