64-slice CT Scanning

Computed tomography (CT) is a type of imaging that uses special X-ray equipment to take pictures of the body from different angles. CT scans can help doctors detect signs of heart disease, blood clots, internal bleeding and other conditions.

64-slice CT scanning is an advanced technology that is more powerful than a regular CT scanner. It provides improved image detail and resolution, which can allow better accuracy in detecting who is at risk for heart disease and other conditions.

During this painless test, you will lie still on a table while it slowly passes through a large X-ray machine. Some CT scans may utilize a contrast dye that makes certain parts of your body show up more clearly in the image. The scan is usually complete in a few minutes.
