Our CT scanner uses 16-slice technology to perform faster scans while maintaining the highest image quality. With the Care Dose4D feature, patient dosage is also lowered. It's capable of specialized scans including CT angiography and CT of the spine.
We are pleased to have this CT scanning capability available for our patients. On-site imaging means fewer scheduling and transportation hassles and more efficient health care-all at a lower cost than that of most hospitals or imaging facilities.
