CT Scans

CT scans are used when a physician suspects a medical problem that is not easily detectable from a conventional physical examination. It assists physicians in better seeing a variety of areas, such as the spine, head, abdomen and chest, including detailed imaging of the heart. CT scans are noninvasive and usually painless and can:

  • Diagnose infection
  • Pinpoint the exact area for a biopsy
  • Identify growths including cancer
  • Study blood vessels for heart attack or stroke
  • Perform bone density studies

Technologies

SOMATOM Definition Flash - The SOMATOM Definition Flash was designed to make CT exams much quicker and healthier for patients. Its core innovation – the revolutionary Flash Spiral – offers incredibly sharp images at the fastest possible speed while emitting the lowest possible dose of radiation.

With its Dual Source technology, the SOMATOM Definition Flash is the fastest scanner on the market. It produces higher quality scans with reduced prep time and significantly reduces image artifacts due to motion. It minimizes risk and anxiety for children, allows sound diagnosis in obese patients and handles challenging cardiac cases. It is equipped with two Stellar Detectors for outstanding spatial resolution, image quality and dose efficiency. With the SOMATOM Definition Flash, speed means a more reliable diagnosis leading to sound treatment decisions in a wide variety of clinical applications.
