Computed tomography (CT) is a non-invasive test that captures images of the body in sections, or slices, to generate a three-dimensional image. It is used for numerous purposes, including trauma, chest/abdomen/pelvis exams, angiography, and cardiac, vascular and stroke assessment.
CT at Northwest Hospital Imaging includes a 64-slice scanner, able to visualize even the smallest blood vessels in less than ten seconds. Its speed and level of detail lend the scanner to improved early diagnosis and treatment options. The 16-slice scanner offers innovative technology in a compact size and routinely obtains the finest diagnostic details and excellent image quality with thin-slice protocols.
