Computed Tomography (CT) has revolutionized diagnostic medicine. It is a valuable tool used to help diagnose many conditions. But not all CT scanners are created equal when it comes to finding small details in your body. Our new state of the art scanner helps doctors learn what’s really going on inside you.
With unprecedented speed and outstanding image quality, the new Brilliance CT scanner at MD Imaging detects disease earlier to lead to better treatment options. Scans are quick and non-invasive. This system allows clinicians to capture a high resolution image of the heart in 5 beats, or go head to toe in less than 10 seconds – faster than any other CT scanner on the market today.
Its unmatched technology platform offers a wide range of routine and advanced procedures. Cardiovascular, oncology, pulmonary, neurology, stroke assessment, orthopedic, and pediatric studies are quickly and accurately accomplished. This latest generation scanner is able to non-invasively capture images of any organ in one second and capture images of the heart and coronaries in fewer than five heartbeats. In a single rotation this new system creates 64 credit card-thin images (slices), totaling 40 millimeters of anatomical coverage. These images are combined to form three-dimensional views of your anatomy for the radiologist to analyze.
Your doctor is given detailed image information displayed in the most appropriate format, to speed diagnosis and enhance treatment and surgical planning. Crisp, clear, fast images mean relevant information gets to your doctor, in a more flexible and useful format.
A 440 lb. table weight capacity will accommodate larger patients and the speed of the scanner allows for greater anatomical coverage in a very short time, which means short breath holds, a key factor for some older individuals or patients in distress.
Your health matters and that’s why MD Imaging has chosen this state of the art technology for its community and for you. If your doctor has referred you for a CT scan, choose MD Imaging.For more information, please contact us at (530) 243-1249 or 1-800-794-XRAY. We welcome your call.
