CT & CTA
CT Scan (Computed Tomography) is a process that combines a digital computer with x-rays. Using an x-ray beam, the CT scan creates detailed, cross-sectional images of various parts of the body such as the lungs, liver, kidneys, pancreas, pelvis, extremities, brain, spine, and blood vessels; it also sends them to a computer for viewing. Multislice technology acquires multiple cross-sections simultaneously which results in significantly shorter scan times. Sophisticated results, often presented in 3-D, can be made available to you shortly after an exam is completed.
MD Imaging’s Multislice BRILLIANCE CT scans at breakthrough speed which allows patients who have difficulty remaining immobile to have accurate scans in a short period of time. Its superior image quality and speed of reconstructing images (in one quarter of the time of other scanning systems) means images are available for faster and more accurate diagnoses. Also, our dose modulating software results in less radiation exposure to patients than those not having this software.
This state-of-the-art technology allows us to perform advanced scanning applications, such as:
• Cardiovascular imaging
• CT angiography
• Virtual colonoscopy
• CT coronary angiography and scoring
• Cardiac function
• Volumetric lung nodule analysis
