Lee's Summit Medical Center offers the 128-Slice Computed Tomography (CT) scanner, the latest generation in a line of CT scanners, and one that is revolutionizing non-invasive diagnosis. This machine can scan the whole body in seconds and provide incredibly sharp 3D images of any organ.
The new 128 slice scanner is changing the face of diagnosis. The scanner's ability to quickly and non-invasively spot small tumors, in a check on the lungs for example, or plaque in the case of cardiovascular disease, is making it the preferred option for diagnosis by an increasing number of physicians.
128-Slice CT is now one of the most important methods of radiological diagnosis. It delivers non-superimposed, cross-sectional images of the body, which can show smaller contrast differences than conventional X-ray images. This allows better visualization of specific differently structured soft-tissue regions, for example, which could otherwise not be visualized satisfactorily.
