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.
CTs Can Be Used For Diagnosis Of:
- Blood Flow
- Bone Inflammation, Bruising, Fractures
- Brain Disorders
- Lung Obstructions
- Cardiovascular Disease
- Chest pain
- Kidney Stone Detection
- Shoulder, Knee, Joint Injuries
- Spine Abnormalities

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.
