40-slice Computerized Tomography (CT)

Premier Imaging has invested in a Siemens Somatom Definition AS 40 Slice CT. This is the world’s first adaptive computed tomography (CT) scanner, which adapts to virtually any patient, allowing even the most clinically challenging patients (i.e., trauma and bariatric patients) to be imaged rapidly, from head to toe, without difficulty.

Other benefits:

  • Unique technology prevents unnecessary radiation
  • Produces the clearest image possible
  • Increases quality and efficiency of care
  • Full coverage of any organ in 4-D

Understanding the basics of CT.

A CT scan, also called computed tomography or just CT, combines a series of X-ray view taken from many different angles to produce cross-sectional images of the bones and soft tissues inside your body.

The resulting images can be compared to a loaf of sliced bread. Your doctor will be able to look at each of these slices individually or perform additional visualization to make 4-D images. CT scan images provide much more information than do plain X-rays.

A CT scan is particularly well suited to quickly examine people who may have internal injuries from car accidents or other types of trauma. A CT scan can also visualize the brain and, with the help of injected contrast material, check for blockages or other problems in your blood vessels.
