Multidetector CT Scan

CT Scan - Computed Tomography is a painless noninvasive medical test that helps physicians diagnoseMultidetector CT scan image and treat medical conditions. CT uses X-ray equipment to produce multiple images or pictures of the body and a computer to join them together in cross sectional views of the area of the body being studied. The physician can examined the images on a computer.

Radiologists can easily diagnose problems such as cancers, cardiovascular disease, infectious disease, trauma and musculoskeletal disorders.

Common Uses:

  • chest & abdomen
  • diagnosing many different cancers -since the images allow the physician to confirm the tumor and measure the size and precise location and the extent of the of the tumor's involvement with surrounding tissue.
  • spinal problems and injuries
  • detection, diagnosis and treatment of vascular disease

Benefits
Multidetector CT scan image

  • No compromise in image quality - even in advanced motion sensitive examinations such as pulmonary and short breath-hold cardiac studies.
  • Advanced cardiac imaging made easy with the full power of Philips Rate Responsive™ Technology.
  • The only CT user environment developed especially for multislice CT.
  • Unprecedented reconstruction rates of up to 20 ips in full 3D cone beam reconstruction.
  • Dose management that protects your patients.

CTA - CT Angiography

CT Angiography is a minimally invasive medical test that helps physician diagnose and treat medical conditions. Angiography uses one of the three imaging technologies:

  • Computed Tomography CT
  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging MRI
  • X-Rays and catheters

In CTA Computed Tomography using a contrast material produced the detailed images. CTA uses special x-ray equipment to produce multiple images and a computer to join them together in cross-sectional views.

Common Uses:

  • brain
  • kidneys
  • pelvis
  • legs
  • lungs
  • heart
  • neck

CTA is used to identify or detect:

  • aneurysms
  • atherosclerosis
  • athersclerotic disease in the arteries to the legs
  • visualize blood flow
  • detect injury to arteries in trauma patients
  • identify and evaluate arteries feeding tumors
  • show atherosclerosis in the coronary arteries
  • Plan for surgical coronary bypass
  • evaluate kidney donors
  • examine pulmonary arteries
  • detect thrombosis
