The 64-slice CT scanner is a state-of-the-art multi-slice scanner which produces high-resolution images of any part of the body in just seconds.

Preferred Imaging Centers offers advanced medical imaging technology and radiology interpretations using 64-slice CT scanners.

What is a 64-slice CT Scanner?

A 64 slice CT machine is a computed tomography scanner that can capture up to 64 images, or “slices,” of the body in a single rotation. This type of CT machine produces highly detailed 3D images of the body and is commonly used in cardiac imaging to diagnose heart disease and evaluate blood vessels. The speed and detail of a 64 slice CT scan can be particularly useful in emergency situations where quick and accurate diagnosis is critical.

Preferred Imaging Centers offers 64 Slice CT scans from multiple convenient locations to serve the Chicago metro and surrounding areas.

Computerized Tomography, also known as a CT or CAT scan is a medical imaging device that combines the use of x-rays with computers to produce images that allow physicians to look inside a patient’s body. Unlike conventional radiographs, a CT scan can produce clear, extremely detailed pictures of the body’s internal structures. It can separate bone from muscle and fat in the part of the body being examined.

Much like a conventional radiograph, x-rays pass through the person’s body and a computer then reconstructs the information into cross-sectional images. These cross-sectional images allow the radiologist to evaluate the internal organs as though we looked at the body separated into a series of thin “slices”.

A CT or CAT scan is a noninvasive test that can help your medical provider diagnose and treat a wide variety of medical conditions. A CT scan can be helpful to examine almost any part of your body, but some of the most common conditions evaluated include injuries (trauma), cancers, and sources of pain.
