CT Screening

Computed Tomography (CT)

A CT Scanner combines a rotating x-ray tube and a computer to produce high-resolution, cross sectional images of the body.

The technology is used to screen for coronary artery disease, lung and colon cancer. It is also used for diagnostic work on lungs, the musculoskeletal systems (especially bones), and for dental work prior to implants.

Canada Diagnostic Centres operates the 64-slice Aquilion CT Scanner from Toshiba Medical Systems. With its advanced features and capabilities, the Aquilion 64 is ideal for studies requiring precise clinical information. This high-speed, high-resolution scanner acquires 64 simultaneous .5mm slices in under half a second which means detailed studies of any area of the body can be done in seconds.
