Also known as Computerized Tomography, this system uses specialized x-ray
equipment and powerful computers to create cross-sectional images of the
inside of the body or the head. CT scans provide more detail than conventional
x-rays and can produce images of bone, soft tissue and blood vessels all
at the same time.
Heart Scanning Capabilities
The SOMATOM Sensation 64, manufactured by Siemens Medical Solutions USA,
Inc., is the world's first CT scanner able to take 192 images of the
heart per second. This non-invasive, virtually pain-free procedure offers
exceptional image quality, which can mean better diagnosis, faster recovery
time and increased patient comfort and convenience.
