CT (CAT Scan - Computed Axial Tomography)

CT is specialized X-ray equipment that can produce computer generated cross-sectional images of all sections of the body. Our 64-Slice CT scanner features advanced technology that produces split-second high-quality images, permitting physicians to see much greater detail in a fraction of the time needed for other procedures.

With our 64-Slice CT, our medical staff is able to more effectively detect and treat a range of life threatening illnesses, including heart disease, cancer, stroke, and lung disease. Our 64-Slice CT is a tremendous diagnostic benefit to our community.
