We are excited to announce the installation of or new multidetector scanner, a Philips Brilliance 40-channel CT with DICOM interface and Extended Brilliance Workspace.
This powerful CT scanner offers ultra-fast scan times, translating in shorter patient anesthesia: a whole body scans can be conducted in less than 30 seconds! Because images are acquired using slices that are less than 1 mm in thickness, resolution is greatly enhanced, and images can be quickly and seamlessly reconstructed in multiple planes and in 3-D. These tools greatly enhance our board-certified radiologists’ diagnostic accuracy, and expand our imaging capability to include angiographic studies for the evaluation of portosystemic shunts, thromboembolic disease, and other vascular abnormalities. In addition, 3-D reconstructions are powerful tool in the pre-operative evaluation of various diseases, especially orthopedic conditions, such as complex fractures.
