Ultra Low Dose, High Definition CT Scans
Ultra Low Dose, High Definition CT scans makes use of computer-processed combinations of many X-ray measurements taken from different angles to produce cross-sectional (tomographic) images (virtual “slices”) of specific areas of a scanned object, allowing the user to see inside the object without cutting.
Low Radiation Dose Computed Tomography (CT) uses low levels of radiation to help diagnose and monitor a wide array of conditions. A CT scanner has detectors which move around the body in a circular motion. This allows detailed images to be built up as you move through the scanner. The CT scans are cross-sectional views of the body that can be viewed in a sequence, much like slices of bread stacked together.
Using the CT scanner and a powerful computer, we can build three dimensional images showing the soft tissues, bones and blood vessels, and see parts of the body, which are difficult to view by any other method. Most CT examinations are simple, fast and painless.
