Computed Tomography (CT)
The Advanced Imaging Center is proud to house the 256-channel Philips Brilliance Computed Tomography (CT) scanner. A technological marvel, it is the region's most advanced CT, providing ultra-high resolution, non-invasive scanning of the heart and coronary arteries, perfusion imaging, and vascular imaging at up to one half the radiation dose of less sophisticated scanners at remarkable speeds.
The significantly reduced radiation dose is a major advance in CT technology and is particularly beneficial in the treatment of children.
What is Computed Tomography
CT is essentially a sophisticated X-ray that is used to produce highly accurate images of the body, including the brain, head, neck, spine, chest, lung, abdomen, and pelvis.
The resulting images are incredibly detailed and greatly assist in the diagnostic process by helping physicians visualize structures in the
body and how they relate to one another.
Our state-of-the-art multi-slice and ultra-fast helical scanner provides the most comprehensive scans possible, including diagnostic body, musculoskeletal, cardiac and neurologic scanning.
Important Information about Lung Screening
Although it is not usually covered by insurance, our CT unit is also capable of lung screening. If your insurance will not cover this exam, our Center requires payment with cash or credit card (checks are not accepted).
