What is a CT scan?
"CT" stands for computed tomography, an X-ray technique that allows doctors to study cross-sectional views of the head and body through an X-ray scanning device linked to a computer. You may also know it as a "cat scan."
Faster Imaging Speed
The LightSpeed VCT (volume CT) provides high-resolution images in a fraction of the time previously required, ensuring an easier, faster imaging experience for patients. The quicker scan time also enables a faster diagnosis. Offering unprecedented speed, LightSpeed technology is capable of capturing entire organs in a one-second scan, the entire heart and coronary structures in five seconds, and a whole body vascular scan in 10.
What does a CT scan show?
Physicians can rely on the non-invasive LightSpeed VCT to help with diagnosis in a variety of anatomical areas, such as the spine, head, abdomen, and chest, including detailed imaging of the heart.
